HYPODERMIC NEEDLE / SYRINGE / SHARPS REMOVAL
Elford Bio Clean can provide a professional sharps search and removal service for all types of ‘sharps’.
Items classified as sharps can include:
· Hypodermic needles
· Razors and razor blades
· Glass (broken or intact)
· And any number of other items that may cause laceration or puncture
Our highly trained, certificated, vaccinated and insured staff are experts in the safe removal of needles, syringes, razor blades and all sharps items. The risks associated with sharps includes puncture wounds and the passing on of bloodborne pathogens within body fluids, such as Hepatitis and HIV. The removal of contaminated sharps is a potentially dangerous undertaking and should not be carried out by untrained individuals. Once the sharps have been removed, the area is disinfected to ensure all body fluid biohazard contamination is eradicated.
Site surveys and risk assessments are always performed before the needle sweep and removal of any needles, syringes and sharps items.
All sharps sweeps and removal procedures are fully documented and auditable.
All sharps removal, incineration and disinfection of the sites are carried out in full accordance with Health & Safety, government and COSHH procedures.
The transportation and disposal of contaminated items found following a needle pick can only be undertaken by a company holding a waste carriers licence.
We offer our needle sweep and removal services to local authorities, housing associations, drug rehabilitation centres, letting agents, landlords, colleges, universities, the police and prison services, offices and workplaces.
