"By converting to a Daniels Sharpsmart Container, 
Container Related Sharps Injuries 
were reduced by 86.6%"

Peer Reviewed Study published in the American Journal of Infection Control

 

Innovation that saves lives

  • An estimated 20,000 Healthcare workers have been saved from needlestick injuries since the Sharpsmart sharps container was launched
  • 5 Peer Reviewed Studies published, demonstrating and validating Daniels Sharpsmart as a proven 'safety engineered device' 
  • Countless United States based case studies of infection and safety risks minimized

 


 

Across five peer reviewed studies published in notable journals, and hundreds of case studies reporting significant reduction in needlestick injuries and reduced infection risk through the use of the Sharpsmart sharps container and other Daniels clinically engineered medical waste products, Daniels Health has asserted itself as one of the most innovative safety companies in the healthcare space. Case Study Results reveal:

 

What would happen if you put ‘Safety, Infection Prevention and Clinical Approach’ at the forefront of healthcare waste?

It would dramatically change how we see sharps and clinically defined wastes being collected, stored, touched and transported in healthcare environments. That is what Daniels does… we see things differently, clinically, and with safety at the forefront of everything we do... 

 

With the direct cost of managing a sharps injury estimated to be up to USD 4,800 per injury, fewer needlestick injuries, minimized infection transfer risk and more efficient medical waste and sharps management will help your healthcare facility to lower its overall costs.


'Making Healthcare Safer' is the philosophy that guides Daniels; we are committed to developing the safest, most environmentally friendly products and services available for everyone involved in healthcare. Our products and systems have been developed with extensive input and advice from healthcare workers around the world, including clinicians, safety and health personnel, infection control, EVS managers and support staff such as cleaners and orderlies.

 

Our primary focus is the reduction of sharps injuries through safer sharps management systems and practices, but our safety approach goes even further. At Daniels we take into account other healthcare worker risks such as the potential for back injuries if collectors or accessories are too heavy or difficult to move, compliance expertise, and waste segregation solutions that minimize risk exposure and infection risks.

 

 


Safety at every step

SAFETY AT EVERY STEP

The Sharpsmart system’s performance has been proven in peer-reviewed, evidence-based studies confirming significant sharps injury reductions and is voted “Best System” by healthcare workers.

SAFE DELIVERY

Daniels Sharpsmart collectors arrived pre-assembled at your healthcare facility in bulk transport units; this eliminates staff time needed for assembly of containers, sharps injury risk from incorrectly assembled containers, and eliminates cardboard packaging.

SAFETY WHERE YOU NEED IT

Sharps containers should be placed as close as possible to the point of sharps generation. Correct placement of collectors is an important part of the success of the Sharpsmart system. A wide range of accessories and mounting options ensures a Sharpsmart collector is where you need it, when you need it.

PROTECTING STAFF AND PATIENTS

Many healthcare workers suffer sharps injuries from overfilled sharps containers. Sharpsmart collectors eliminate this risk with their unique, gravity balanced safety tray which eliminates hand-access to contents and automatically closes when the fill-level is reached, thus preventing any chance of overfilling.

SAFER WHEN FULL

When full, Sharpsmart collectors are locked by engaging tamper-proof side locks which cannot be re-opened manually and can only be unlocked during Daniels' robotic wahing process. This security measure eliminates risk of unauthorized access to contents in storage and transport.

SAFETY ON THE ROAD

Sharpsmart is certified to United Nations PG2 specifications for Transport of Dangerous Goods. No additional packaging is required to transport Sharpsmart collectors on public roads. In transport, Daniels purpose-built transporters ensure collectors are secured, suspended, and free from cross contamination. 

SAFER FOR THE ENVIRONMENT

Sharpsmart collectors eliminate over 28% of plastic and cardboard. All collectors are washed through Daniels’ unique robotic Washsmart which ensures safe and effective sanitization to an extremely high degree of microbiological efficacy with zero harmful chemicals. To reduce water usage, fresh water from later stages of the robotic process is recycled back for earlier-stage use.

QUALITY ASSURANCE BEFORE DELIVERY

At the completion of the Sharpsmart robotic washing process, a final quality control inspection ensures that containers are clean and fully functional. Sharpsmart containers are made with replaceable parts; any damaged components are removed, sorted, and sent to plastic reprocessing plants to be ground down and recycled.
