Sharps Container Disposal / Accessibility Criteria

Security may be a concern in some areas of facili­ties using sharps disposal containers. For in­stance, to prevent children and others from putting their hands into the containers, the facility should consider selecting containers with guards that prevent bands or fingers from entering the containers. Where safety features are added to restrict child access, these features should not interfere with the worker's vision of the inlet opening. Injury to visitors may also be a problem. Sharps container disposal options that ac­commodate these concerns should be available within the facility.
