Waste staff exposed to 1,000 vets needles
Vets4Pets was fined for unsafely disposing a batch of needles in conventional rubbish. VETS4PETS exposed Island Waste staff to 1,000 needles after the firm mistakenly sent them to its sorting plant. While nobody was hurt, Crown Advocate Chris Dunford told the Magistrate’s Court that a needle stick injury could lead to fatal conditions such as rabies, anthrax and tuberculosis. None of the staff was wearing needle-proof gloves at the time.
