    TEXT VERSION OF SLIDE:

    Type: Picture Slide
    Content: Illustration of an arrow labeled "Safer Needle Devices" pointing to the right with three arrows coming out of the point. The three arrows are labeled: Engineering Controls, Built-in Safety Features, and Risk Reduction.

    Speaker Notes:

    A safer needle device uses engineering controls to prevent needlestick injuries before, during, or after use through built-in safety features. The term, "safer needle device," is broad and includes many different types of devices including those that have a protective shield over the needle and those that do not use needles at all. The common feature of effective safer needle devices is that they reduce the risk of needlestick injuries to health care workers.
