The “Total Sharps Safety System” is comprised of three products. The disposable Weighted Safety Scalpel which has a lockable safety shield that slides over the knife blade when not in use, and is available in #3 (Long) handle, #4 handle with #20 blade, and Carbon Steel blades. The Z-Tray, a true “safe zone” passing tray with oval shaped sides and staggered bottom that offers easy pick up, which provides for the hands free transfer of sharps and is now available in an extendable tray to accommodate long instruments. And the Z-Instrument Drape with a nonskid surface that offers a secure safe zone for picking up & placing sharps during a procedure. Use of all three or a combination of these products can reduce sharps injuries. All these products are designed to help ensure O.R. personnel safety during the handling, use and transfer of sharps, and comply with OSHA requirements.
