FIT Safety

FIT4Safety UK and Ireland will provide evidence-based best practice information which encompasses all people at risk of needle stick injury and accidental blood or other body fluid exposure.

The aim of these recommendations is to protect individuals and prevent injury. The goal of ensuring that risk assessment and safe practice are the norm will be accomplished through raising awareness, education, training and easily accessible information.


•    Help individuals and organizations identify risk associated with sharps and accidental blood or body fluid exposure
•    Raise awareness of EU Directive 2010/32 Sharps Injuries
•    Support individuals and organizations to apply the new EU Directive to clinical practice in their field of care
•    Inform individuals and organizations using contemporaneous evidence-based practice to minimize risk and promote safer practice
•    Facilitate opportunities in which best practice can be discussed, developed, implemented and evaluated throughout UK and Ireland
