THE STICK STOPS HERE – The risks of two handed recapping

Ouch!  A bad habit is “sticking” around. Two handed recapping is the use of one hand to hold the dental syringe while using your other hand to put the cap back on the needle. Used, contaminated needles are the easiest way to transmit HIV or Hepatitis B. Getting stuck with a dirty needle is both scary and expensive. OSHA requires employers to cover testing and treatment. This cost may easily be thousands of dollars

The OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens Standard and the 2006 Needle Safety Act require evaluation of safer devices and training on how to safely handle dirty sharp instruments and contaminated needles to protect workers.

Reduce the risk with Pro Tector® Needle Sheath Prop, a single use card which holds the cap, allowing easy one handed recapping. Safety and peace of mind is only about 13 cents per use (retail).
