Sharps Awareness Train the Trainer Course

Aims and Objectives

This course is designed to provide an insight to some of the issues associated with the incorrect handling of such implements, health risks to ensure the safe disposal and handling of these implements or is an ideal course to top-up existing knowledge and tool box training. It is also an ideal course for managers to understand the issues being faced by their staff and offers ideas and solutions to help deal with these issues.

The course covers legislation, contractible illnesses and diseases, prevention of injury as well as problem solving discussions with the course candidates such as identifying unexpected sites where sharps could be located and we also explore currently available equipment and its use. The trainer gives a demonstration using our sharps kit and delegates then have the opportunity to take part in a practical exercise as an individual and as part of the further group activity.

In addition we will explore modern trainer training techniques:

  • Planning and preparing to train, including the writing of trainers plans
  • Delivering effective training
  • Different learning syles using the Honey and Mumford approach
  • Dealing with difficult delegates
  • Providing feedback and assessment

  • Who Should Attend?

    This course has been targeted for those new to teaching others about sharps awareness, and is also ideal for those wishing to update their skills.


    The course is delivered over 2 days.

    Course Materials

    Each delegate will be issued with a course workbook to assist them both during and after the course. This workbook will contain information and forms to assist sharps trainers. In addition a trainer's pack will be provided containing a PowerPoint presentation and training material (activities, exercises, etc) for use in their own sessions.


    Delegates will be awarded a Certificate of Attendance upon successful completion of the course.
