SHARPS TERMINATOR™

A safe, cost-effective, solution for preventing accidental needlesticks at the point-of-procedure. Sharps are destroyed in seconds, eliminating the risk of bloodborne pathogen transfer due to percutaneous needle punctures.

This year, over 1,200,000 health care workers in the E.U. will be the victims of accidental needlestick injuries.

With the cost of testing and treatment now averaging 1,000€ per incident, accidental needlesticks promise to drain upwards of a billion euros this year from an already struggling health care system. Even more troubling, these figures do not take into account the cost of litigation, OSHA violations, or the burden of long-term care—which can be as high as 600,000€ for a single hepatitis infection.

ACCIDENTAL NEEDLESTICK INJURIES ARE COMMON,
COSTLY, AND PREVENTABLE

But it's not all bad news. Research shows that up to 82% of sharps injuries are preventable, and OSHA maintains the consistent and correct use of personal protective equipment and other safety procedures will reduce injury rates.

The risk is real, the need is clear. All that's been missing is a simple, cost-effective solution that really works—Sharps Terminator.™
