The Safe Management of Healthcare Waste guidance published by the Department of Health(2006) provides a new national colour coded system for the management and disposal of sharps and other healthcare wastes.
SHARPSGUARD Orange is a comprehensive range of containers for disposal of sharps, excluding those that have been contaminated with medicinal products and their residues.
SHARPSGUARD Yellow is a similar range to SHARPSGUARD Orange, with the added advantage that they can also be used to dispose of sharps contaminated with medicinal products and their residues, other than Cytotoxic and / or Cytostatic medicines.
SHARPSGUARD Cyto with new distinctive purple-coloured lids is a comprehensive range of containers for the disposal of sharps including those contaminated with Cytotoxic and / or Cystostatic medicinal products and residues.
SHARPSGUARD Pharmi (blue aperture lids) is designed for the safe collection, transportation and disposal of solid medicinal waste in original packaging i.e tablets (not cytotoxic or cytostatic)
