CPD Certified, sharps safety and awareness training online, course suitable for healthcare, dentists, rubbish removal services, residential care home staff.
In this online sharps and needles awareness course we will start by looking at some statistics relating to discarded needles and then look at the different types of sharps that can be found in “sharps litter”. The classification of sharps ranges from needles, syringes, scalpel blades to broken glass, knives, scissors and nails.
This online sharps safety training programme covers the primary and secondary risks from sharps and it looks at the responsibilities of employers and how they must use risk assessment to ensure workers safety. This online course will then take a detailed look at Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, HIV and Tetanus, as there will be a section on the chain of infection.
By having a good sharps procedure it will help you to understand how an infection gets passed on, and what steps can be taken to break the spreading process.
Our sharps awareness online training course is available with free sharps awareness training videos, which can be paused or rewound as you progress through the course. Also free sharps awareness certification is available on successful completion of training, which can be downloaded and printed on successful completion.
