    with any sharp items used in the laboratory,
    including needles and syringes, glass slides and
    cover slips, Pasteur pipettes, capillary tubes,
    as well as broken glass, and scalpels, blades,
    and knives. Sharps must be disposed of in an
    approved sharps container. Sharps containers may
    never be placed in the normal waste stream or
    used for any purpose other than sharps disposal.
  • Sharps containers have to be
  • Puncture Resistant
  • Clearly marked
  • Within easy reach of the work station
  • Filled to no more than 3/4 capacity
  • Sealed (i.e. capped or taped) prior to transport
