DECAP for Researchers
Needlesticks are one of the most common workplace injuries in research
More than 95% of researchers have experienced at least 1 needlestick injury in the last year.
At a large, well-known institution in BC, more than 10% of all incident reports were about needlestick injuries!
And the vast majority of researchers admit to needing to recap needles while working with animals or dangerous chemicals.
DECAP has the solution! Our research shows that placing arms-distance units throughout the lab increases user frequency while improving workflow efficiency when performing multiple injections!
Together, we can make needlestick injuries in research disappear!
