The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has updated its Workbook for Designing, Implementing and Evaluating a Sharps Injury Prevention Program, a 62-page document that guides healthcare facilities in assessing safety culture and designing programs to eliminate needle and sharps injuries.
 
The new edition was made possible through an alliance with The Premier Safety Institute, Charlotte, NC. It incorporates feedback from eight hospitals that initiated programs based on the first edition issued in 2004. It also includes posters and tools for collecting data, evaluating devices, documenting exposure incidents, and implementing prevention devices and work practices.
