Sharps policy, foreign objects and first aid procedures
Sharps is a term used to describe any items or objects that could cause you (or others) injury or death. Injury occurs when there is a break in the skin surface from a prick, cut or stab.
Foreign objects are things that don't belong with the item. Foreign objects become lost property. You must report foreign objects to your Supervisor.
Notify your First Aid Officer or Supervisor of any injury or wound so they can take immediate action.

Spontaneous combustion is a slow process where decomposition and oxidation occur and heat builds up to a point where the items catch on fire (without the use of an external flame).
