Used sharps such as needles and syringes are clearly dangerous when they are not handled and disposed of correctly. Needles and syringes may be contaminated with human blood, bodily fluids or other infectious material. Exposure to these contaminants through a needlestick injury could put a person at risk of contracting a blood-borne virus such as Hepatitis B Virus (HBV), Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) or Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). Used sharps are classified as biohazardous waste and must be handled carefully.
