OSHA requires sharps containers to be leaktight on the sides and bottom. However, the Dept. of Transportation (DOT) requires containers be leaktight on the sides, bottom, and the top closure which is a more stringent standard than imposed by OSHA.To meet these requirements, all Post Medical sharps disposal containers have sealable, leaktight tops for maximum safety during use, transportation and storage.
All Post Medical containers employ the safest, most reliable method of disposing of used sharps — one-hand vertical syringe disposal. The used sharp is dropped directly into the plastic container, needlepoint first, eliminating all needless repositioning and excessive handling of the used sharp. Post Medical products come completely assembled and are self-contained, so personnel are not required to assemble containers and complaints about lost or ill-fitting parts are eliminated. Post Medical provides a wide range of sharps containers to meet the diverse needs of institutions, hospice and home health care. We also offer a complete line of locking metal cabinets and mounting hardware to ensure against tampering, accidental spillage and access by unauthorized personnel.
