The founder of POLYNOR, Mr Odd Terje Østgaard, started developing a prototype Safety Box for easy and safe disposal of used syringes and needles in June 1994, to be initially test marketed through UNICEF.
The main objective was to develop a safety box to be used under primitive conditions for on site destruction. The result was a safety box which in itself was an incinerator.
Following Østgaard’s continuous product improvements and technical adaptations of the safety box, the POLYSAFE® has complied with the WHO specifications since 1998.
Today POLYNOR owns all intellectual property rights to its product POLYSAFE® as well as the trademark and copyright protection. POLYNOR has not transferred any of its intellectual property rights to a third party.
