Common Questions About The OSHA Sharps Essentials Compliance Kit:

Why 3 boxes of gloves?
OSHA regulations for those who deal with blood and bodily fluids require that gloves be made available in all sizes that staff need. Properly fitting gloves protect better by not tearing (from a too-small glove), and not falling off (a too-large glove), which could expose the wearer to infectious pathogens. So, included in the Kit are Small, Medium, and Large gloves, to ensure a proper fit. (X-Large gloves can be purchased separately.)

Why is a bracket included with the sharps container?
Again, OSHA regulations. The wall-mount bracket prevents tipping and spilling of sharp needles and any blood and drugs inside, preventing the possibility of a needlestick or other exposure to pathogens and harmful drugs.

What are the Mail-Away boxes about?
Potentially infectious waste, such as protective gear and clean up items with blood or any bodily fluids on them, must not be thrown into the common trash (OSHA regulations), but must be processed by a licensed medical waste facility. The Mail-Away boxes safely ship the waste or sharps container to a proper facility. The postage is pre-paid, so there's no extra cost.

What are the RedZ and the Plastic Scooper for?
Most commonly used to clean up vomit spills, each 0.75 oz RedZ packet absorbs bodily fluids up to 25 ounces. The plastic scooper and scraper allow the user to move the crystals with the absorbed liquid into the biohazardous waste red bag or bucket safely.

Why Do We Need A Spill Kit?
The Spill Kit contains everything needed to clean up a blood spill. It contains products to protect the user, clean up the spill, disinfect the surface, and properly contain all the contaminated elements. After use, all items should be placed inside the Biohazard Waste Bucket.
