What is considered a Sharp?

  • Needles are hollow metal points that inject medications under the skin.
  • Syringes: Syringes are devices with needles that inject medication or withdraw fluids from the body.
  • Lancets: Also known as "fingerstick" devices, these instruments have a short, two-edged blade that pricks the finger to get drops of blood for testing.
  • Auto-injectors: These devices are pre-filled syringes with self-injection fluid medication. Common examples include epinephrine and insulin pens.
  • Infusion sets: This type of tubing system with a needle is used to deliver medication.
  • Connection sets are tube sets with needles used to transfer fluids to and from the body. These are commonly used in hemodialysis.

What is the risk involved in Contaminated Sharps waste?

  • If contaminated sharps waste enters the blood, it can cause the spread of blood-borne pathogens that spread chronic diseases like hepatitis B, C, and HIV.
  • Healthcare workers handle large amounts of sharps waste in hospitals each day.
  • They are at great risk of infection from these waste materials. To reduce the occurrence of these injuries, sharps and containers are used.
  • They are plastic containers for the safe disposal of needles and other sharp medical objects like IV catheters, scalpels, blades, etc.
  • These are often single-use containers that are disposed of with the waste inside or reusable that are emptied and cleaned before reusing. Most sharps containers have an opening for needles.
  • Needles should be dropped directly into the opening and not be forced in, as they may cause injuries.
  • Sharps containers are see-through containers with graduation.
  • Do not fill the container above the indicated mark. Also, specimen containers are available to provide samples for lab testing. These containers are generally see-through to look at the contents of the container and usually come with labels to write upon.


  • Do not try to reopen or reuse when full. Dispose of the container properly in accordance with local regulations.
  • Once the container is 70% full, as indicated by the “full line,” no additional contents should be placed in the container.
  • This container is not intended for direct shipment when full. Place the full container in a secondary transport container for proper sharps disposal in accordance with state and local requirements.
