Needlestick and sharps injuries

The needlestick and sharps injuries working group have been working hard to help reduce the number of needlestick/sharps related injuries across DCHS. We are keen to learn more about the causes of these incidents and have developed some additional mandatory questions to be completed as part of the managers investigation process. This will help us to understand and undertake a thorough review of each needlestick/sharps related incidents to support staff to stay safe. The additional mandatory questions are included in a form which can be found via the health and safety webpage.
