Sharps And Needles Awareness


This course is designed for those whose working role means that they are at a higher risk of injury from used and discarded needles, syringes or sharps; this includes those who undertake manual handling as part of their working role, as well as staff working for the local authorities. Training will enable delegates to identify, report and prevent any risks relating to sharps and needles so as to avoid any incidents, although they will also learn to treat injuries should they occur.

Outline of Programme

  • Introduction and explanation.
  • Current legislation.
  • Identify a sharp and how it can cause injury.
  • Risks associated with injury.
  • Treatment of injury.
  • Reporting injury.
  • Understanding of blood borne viruses and tetanus.

The sharps and needles awareness training course lasts for approximately 3 hours. Candidates will take part in a combination of activities and group discussions; our experienced trainers will be on hand to help guide participants through these sessions. A written assessment will be taken on completion.
