The prevalence of reported Needle Stick Injuries (NSIs) in Australia per year was estimated to be 18,000 in Australian hospitals alone before the introduction of Safety Engineered Devices (SEDs) [1-2]. Considering this number is only the reported incidences and underreporting in Australian hospitals is estimated to be 40%,  this is a significant hindrance in maintaining a safe work environment. There are a number of diseases that can be transmitted through NSI, including the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), hepatitis B (HBV) and hepatitis C (HCV). The use of SEDs has been shown to reduce NSIs by up to 31% during a 9-month implementation period.
