injectionsThe Health and Safety Executive (HSE) wants to know your thoughts on the Sharps Regulations 2013.

To evaluate their effectiveness, the HSE is currently undertaking a post-implementation review (PIR) of the Health and Safety (Sharp Instruments in Healthcare) Regulations 2013, often referred to as Sharps Regulations.

The HSE is seeking views and experiences of healthcare workers, which will be invaluable in informing the review of the Sharps Regulations. In addition, it will be an opportunity to have your say on the regulations.

The survey should take 10-20 minutes to complete and your responses will be treated as strictly confidential – and will remain anonymous when the data is analysed. The information provided will only be used for the purpose of evaluating the effectiveness of the Sharps Regulations.

The survey, entitled Sharp instruments in healthcare (2013) regulations post-implementation, will close on 15 February and can be undertaken here.
