NEW RELEASE - EZ range of sharps collectors

SWS Healthcare Solutions is excited about its innovative new range of sharps collectors. 

 

The EZCollect model comes in 3 sizes; 12ltr, 18ltr and 25ltr. EZCollect has a 100mm wide aperture capable of receiving a kidney dish (or equivalent) of sharps tipped into the collector without any handling direct handling of sharps required.

 

The EZCollect is packed with safety features:

  • Counter balanced lid with a large aperture ensuring you can safely discard sharps without congesting or inhibiting the aperture and that ensures maximum fill capacity is always achieved

  • Handles built in to the sides of the collector (and not on the lid) ensuring no accidental spills when lifting collectors

  • Collectors are puncture proof, spill proof and tamper proof

  • The lid cannot be accidentally locked ensuring you never end up with an empty or near empty sharps collector

  • Collectors fitted with the safety tray are best suited for non-controlled areas and stops prying hands from entering the container as well as preventing overfilling

  • ​Designed to be wall and trolley mounted facilitating convenient point of use operation

  • Clip lock flap to seal the container for safe handling ready for disposal.

 

The EZCollect is also available with a lid that does not include a safety tray. This model is suited for controlled areas accessible only by health professionals. Without Safety Lid feature enables even greater access to the wide aperture for those larger items.

Selecting The Right Service

SWS Healthcare Solutions will work with you to determine the right sharps collector for your needs based on:

  • Volume of sharps clinical waste produced in a given period,

  • Locations where sharps collectors are required, and

  • Space available to position the sharps collector.

 

This will help determine the number, type and size of sharps collectors required as well as the frequency of collection.

 

SWS Healthcare Solutions have a scalable clinical waste sharps solution offering including:

  • The provision, collection, treatment and disposal of a single sharps collector (and multiples thereof), through to

  • A fully managed clinical waste sharps solution for a large facility where all sharps collectors within the facility are assembled monitored, replaced when full, transported to the waste holding area and then correctly disposed.

 

This service is typically combined with a fully integrated waste management service.

 

Not only will we collect and dispose all your existing full sharps collectors of clinical waste, we can update you with all the latest in sharps collector technology. In every case, SWS Healthcare Solutions will provide advice on the correct handling and disposal of sharps clinical waste using the selected containers.
