Sharpsmart was founded in 1986 by innovator and entrepreneur Dan Daniels, and was one of the first companies in the world to provide reusable sharps containers to healthcare facilities.
Sharpsmart - safer and environmentally responsible
Most sharps containers used in Europe are destroyed once they are filled, and for this reason are mass-produced with few effective safety features. Another serious factor with single-use sharps containers is that they add to the huge amount of plastic waste generated by hospitals each year. This plastic is often incinerated, adding to greenhouse-gas emissions, or treated in some way and then dumped into land-fills.Sharpsmart is pleased to provide a solution for European healthcare workers with its unique reusable system, which has been proven to reduce sharps injuries while costing less than other safety devices and also reducing plastic waste.
Proven worldwide success
The Sharpsmart System is used in several thousand healthcare facilities in Australia, New Zealand, USA, UK, Canada, and South Africa. It is the most widely used reusable sharps containment system in the world.
