OFFENSIVE SHARPS BINS
Orange lidded sharps bins are used for the incineration of "sharps" generated from any NON HEALTHCARE PROCEDURE that is deemed to be Offensive rather than hazardous to human health.
These include Tatto Studios, Company first aid rooms, Beauticians but not facial aesthetics, Gardeners, Carpet fitters and many more.
The rule for the use of a sharps bin is any item could cause a puncture wound then it must be put ina sharps bin.
We have a lot of tattoo studios that put their razors straight in to the tiger bag or snapp the blade off and then put the razor handle in the bag butthe sharps edge still could cause a puncture wound. THE WHOLE RAZOR MUST BE PUT IN THE SHARPS BIN.
Although Offensive (orange) sharps bins can be put through an alternative treatment We incinerate every sharps bin we remove for disposal.
They come in different sizes so the size used by each site will vary and probably be a few.
The size you will need to have should be judged by these 2 rules
All sharps bins must be sent for incineration 3 MONTHS from the 1st item being dropped in.
The size of the items being put in the sharps bin, syringes, needles only & acupuncture needles will all fill the bins ata different speed.
Therefore how long will it take, using my items, to fill the bin in 3 months.
All sharps bins have 2 closed positions, temporary which means you can reopen the aperture but will not allow items within to fall out if the bin is knocked over and locked closed where there is no way of reopening the lid. The lid should be locked when full or ready for disposal. this will allow for safe transport within the building and also by the waste disposal company. Please DO NOT overfill the sharps binit makes it dangerous to handle.
The sharps bin range we use is manufactured to the most stringent quality and safety standards: BS EN ISO 23907, UN3291, AFNOR NFX 30-500 and ISO 9002.
SHARPS BINS SHOULD BE DATED, HAVE A DEPARTMENT OR ROOM No. AND SIGNED BY THE PERSON "BUILDING" OR PUTTING THE BIN IN TO SERVICE WRITTEN ON THE LABEL.
