We received 2,600 claims for needlestick injuries for incidents occurring between 2012 – 2022. Needlestick injuries can be costly to investigate and increase the risk blood-borne infections. Fortunately, the harm and cost of most needlestick injuries are largely avoidable.

We’ve created two new resources to share the learning from these claims and help organisations identify how to prevent future injuries.
