Sharps Injuries

Welcome to this Dentaljuce module on sharps.

Sharps injuries among dental personnel are extremely common. Almost all dental clinical staff have either had a sharps injury, or know someone who has. Research has shown that such injuries are often unreported, the main reason given being that the processes of dealing with it are considered too onerous.

To try and reduce the incidence of injury, and increase reporting, in 2013 the UK Health and Safety Executive made the employers fully responsible in law for making sure that proper procedures are followed when a sharps injury occurs, and that they had designed the workplace to reduce the risk.

This module takes you through all the aspects of sharps in dentistry. It is "Highly Recommended" by the GDC as part of disinfection and decontamination training.

I cannot believe how brilliant this site is. I have passed Part 1 of the MJDF exam, and it will help so much for my Part 2. The animations, videos and content in general is just brilliant. Thank you.
