Safe, sustainable and WHO approved

Simple, effective, environmentally friendly and in multiple sizes 

POLYSAFE® Safety Boxes are the only sharp containers available in larger sizes (up to 20L). Many health organizations prefer larger boxes as they are more efficient. 

The boxes come flat packed in packages which are easy to transport, store and carry. The boxes are assembled by hand when needed. The sharps container can be used and stored in any climate.

POLYSAFE® Safety Boxes are the environmentally friendly solution over plastic containers. They are manufactured in Norway from recycled solid board at an ISO Certified (ISO 9001-2015) high-tech plant.
