About the Sharps Guide Module

The hazards of working in the cleaning industry are high, therefore several measures are put in place to reduce or eliminate the risks posed by these hazards while executing day-to-day duties.

This module will help you understand the nature and the scope of a workplace hazard, identify the risks caused by needle-stick and sharps injuries, the five-step process of risk management, roles and responsibility involved with managing sharps waste and why PPE is vitally important.

By the end of this module, you’ll be able to safely carry out your duties while being able to maintain a high standard of safety and minimise the cases of sharps-related injuries.
