Job Hazards

A job hazard is anything at work than can hurt you, either physically or mentally.

Safety hazards can cause immediate accidents and injuries.

Examples: hot surfaces or slippery floors.

Chemical hazards are gases, vapors, liquids, or dusts that can harm your body.

Examples: cleaning products or pesticides.

Biological hazards are living things that can cause sickness or disease.

Examples: bacteria, viruses, or insects.

Other health hazards are harmful things, not in the other categories, that can injure you or make you sick. These hazards are sometimes less obvious because they may not cause health problems right away.

Examples: noise, repetitive movements, heavy lifting, stress.

Sharps Devices with Safety Features
Self Re-sheathing Needle

Initially, the sleeve is located over the barrel of the syringe with the needle exposed for use. After the device is used, the user slides the sleeve forward over the needle where it locks in place and provides a guard around the used needle.

Syringe with Retractable Needle

After the needle is used, an extra push on the plunger retracts the needle into the syringe, removing the hazard of needle exposure.

Blunt-Tipped Blood Drawing Needles

After blood is drawn, a push on the collection tube moves the blunt tip needle forward through the needle and past the sharp needle point. The blunt point tip of this needle can be activated before it is removed from the vein or artery.

Winged Steel Needles

After placement, the third wing is rotated to flat position which blunts the needle point before it is removed from the patient.

"Add on" Safety Feature

Hinged or sliding shields attached to phlebotomy needles, winged steel needles, and blood gas needles.
