Sharps Awareness Training
Aims and Objectives
This awareness 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.
Who Should Attend?
This sharps training course is aimed at operatives who work with sharps and supervisors and managers who control such activities.
This half-day course is delivered over 3 hours.
Each delegate will be issued with a workbook to assist them both during and after the course - this workbook contains information, guidance and forms to assist workers. The course is designed to be interactive, allowing delegates the opportunity to develop their skills with the support of the course tutor.
Delegates will be awarded a Certificate of Attendance upon successful completion of the course.
