DROPSAFE SAFETY PEN NEEDLES

As of May 2010, the directive 2010/32/EU on the prevention of injuries from sharp and pointed instruments in the hospital and healthcare sector came into force. The EU-directive regulates employee protection regulations and applies to all employers in the hospital and healthcare sector.

The national implementation period was 3 years, until 11 May 2013. Since then, there has been a ban on conventional needle systems in Austria.

The following points are regulated in the directive:

  1. Establish and implement safe procedures for handling sharp and pointed medical instruments and contaminated waste.
  2. Avoid unnecessary use of sharp and pointed instruments and provide instruments with integrated safety and protection mechanisms.
  3. Prohibition of replacing the protective cap on the used needle.
