Sharps Awareness Course
Our Sharps 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.
The course is aimed at operatives who work with sharps and supervisors and managers who control such activities. 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 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.
Our health and safety trainers are qualified and experienced health and safety professionals with an appropriate background in this topic and in delivering engaging health and safety training.
All consultants hold professional membership of the chartered Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH).
