Publication code: 009 687
More than 7,500 members responded to our sharps survey in 2020. This report outlines the 2020 survey methodology and results, compares results with other databases where available, and makes recommendations on how the RCN can assist and lobby employers for safer sharps in the workplace. This research project was enabled by an educational grant from Sharpsmart UK Ltd.
