Safe In Common
and its supporters, including the Premier Safety Institute, invite you to participate in the third in a series of online events that will examine how the
healthcare community can raise awareness about the dangers of needlestick and sharps-related injuries, as well as how to prevent them to keep workers and
patients safe.

“The Unfinished Agenda: When Will Healthcare Worker Sharps Injuries Become a Never Event?” will focus on:

  • Addressing sharps exposure in alternate care sites beyond the hospital
  • Identifying injury prevention needs within healthcare organizations using a task analysis tool
  • Introducing Safe in Common’s Top 10 “Golden Rules” of safer engineering controls

Register now to join a panel of leaders and healthcare industry experts at this online conference as they discuss the issues and barriers facing needlestick safety. Most importantly, find out how to work together to eliminate the threat of needlesticks and make a safer work environment for us all.
