Safety Tranfer Trays

The Bloodborne Pathogen Standard states that facilities should use proper work practices to help eliminate needlesticks and other sharps injuries. A “No-hands” procedure or “neutral zone” helps to eliminate hand-to-hand instrument passing in the operating room. One method of accomplishing this neutral zone is through the use of safety transfer trays. A clinician will place a sharps instrument into the tray and the tray is passed or placed into a neutral zone rather than the sharps instrument being passed.
