All sharps should be handled extremely carefully to avoid prick injuries.
Needles should not be bent, broken or removed from syringes. If they must be removed from syringes, then use forceps.
Remove vacutainers with forceps.
Holders must be used for all blades.
All needles and other sharp instruments should be deposited in puncture resistant sharps containers that must be placed near the working place. The containers (safety boxes) should be clearly labelled, easily accessible and incinerated when three quarters full.
