Tool Box Talk: Sharps
The Compliance Team has recently formulated an “Enigma Sharps Policy”.
This policy reflects the Company’s concern for employees who may come across “sharps” which are defined as any objects liable to be contaminated with bio-hazardous material and which have the capacity to cut or puncture the skin.
Puncture wounds or cuts from syringes, other needles and bladed devices such as scalpels, razors, or even glass, may directly cause infections and ill health or cause wounds and bleeding which make the employee susceptible to infections and viruses in the workplace.
To help reduce such risks, Enigma is in the process of providing Sharps Bins at certain worksites and is also offering a free external course in Sharps Management. For more details about this, contact your Area Manager.
We have included our Sharps Policy for you to download and read at the following link:
It is important that you make yourself aware of the risks associated with sharps and the actions you should take to mitigate these risks.
