Sharps Disposal Cumbria
When it comes to the cleanup of used needles, syringes, razors, knives, broken glasses, a regular broom and pan as well as a garbage bin does not suffice anymore. The reason being, these sharps, had they penetrated the skin, can carry or spread blood-borne pathogens such as Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C and HIV. In other words, they can be the direct source of infectious diseases, some of which may even prove to be fatal. In the UK, the Environmental Protection Act 1990 and the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997 place a "Duty of Care" on anyone who produces, collects, treats and disposes of hazardous waste. Additionally, individuals or legal entities who are regularly exposed to the activities involving sharps must comply with current Hazardous Waste Regulations.
