CD244 - Consultation on proposed regulations to implement Council Directive 2010/32/EU on preventing sharps injuries in the hospital and healthcare sector
The consultation sets out HSE’s proposals to introduce new regulations that are provisionally titled The Health and Safety (Sharp Instruments in Healthcare) Regulations 2013. These regulations are required under European Council Directive 2010/32/EU on the prevention of sharps injuries in the hospital and healthcare sector.
The new regulations will require employers in the healthcare sector to introduce arrangements for the safe use and disposal of medical sharps, to provide information and training to employees, and to record, investigate and take action following a sharps injury.
Although the consultation is now closed, an analysis of the responses is available to download.
