Our sharps waste solution has saved lives since 1994
What are the problems?
Sharps waste can cause serious health- and environmental problems.
Unsafe disposal of used syringes and needles can spread diseases immunization programs are working to prevent.
If the used syringes are not proper collected and destructed, children might find them, play with them and get injured and infected. The syringes might also be sold at the black market for reuse. Nurses and doctors are working under challenging conditions with the fear and chance for getting injured by infected needles because they are working without safe injection practices.
How can they be solved?
POLYSAFE® Safety Boxes and Sharps Containers help protect health care workers, patients and the community from used and possible contaminated sharps. The safety box provides safe collection and effective destruction of used injection equipment.
POLYSAFE® Safety Boxes are flat packed in packages which are easy to transport to final destinations, optimal for storage and easy to carry for the end user in the field. The boxes are assembled by hand when needed. The sharps container can be used and stored in any climate.
POLYSAFE® meets the highest demands from the market. POLYSAFE Safety Boxes are made from recycled solid board which is an environmental friendly solution over plastic containers.
They are manufactured in Norway at an ISO Certified (ISO 9001:2015) high tech plant.
