This Sharps Awareness course instructs individuals handling needles and sharps on the safe usage and proper disposal methods to minimize the risk of injury. Our course dispels the misconception that sharps injuries only concern medical and care staff. It addresses statistics on discarded needles, defines "sharps," and explores various types found in sharps litter.

The course delves into primary and secondary risks, employer responsibilities through risk assessment, and provides in-depth information on Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, HIV, and Tetanus.

Covering the Chain of Infection, the course emphasizes breaking the transmission chain. It assesses the probability of infection from needlestick injuries and factors affecting it. Proper handling of discarded sharps is highlighted, detailing necessary equipment and safe techniques, including correct sharps handling procedures, disposal methods, minimizing cross-contamination, and appropriate handwashing.
