Re-launching Safe Sharps

, a 1-minute piece by Dev Mukherjee Dev Mukherjee

The Safe Sharps project is an initiative of the Riverina Eastern Regional Organisation of Councils (REROC), supported by Diabetes NSW and the NSW Ministry of Health. It provides a directory of locations that can safely dispose off sharps and provide additional services to sharps users. All queries are anonymous, encouraging a sharps free environment for everyone.

Anomaly has been REROC’s technology partner in building and maintaining Safe Sharps. With over thousands of users, Safe Sharps is delivered via the Web and native iOS and Android clients. Today we are proud to announce the fourth major rewrite of the platform for all environments.

With a completely rewritten backend, we bring a familiar Web interface with modern widgets to search for facilities. While staff at REROC relentlessly validate and the data up to date, community members are encouraged to help keep via submitting new locations or marking inaccurate listings. The Web interface is completely responsive and compatible with all modern browsers.

The all new material interface on Android brings features like being able to favourite your most frequented locations, view locations as a map or a list or submit a location right form your phone.

Coming soon to Apple Watch

We are ironing out the rough edges in our iOS update before it rolls out. Our big news is that we are bringing Safe Sharps to the Apple Watch.

The Apple Watch is focused to enhance your health and fitness. With watchOS 5 and Series 4 taking this to the next level, we are proud to join the fitness revolution.

REROC are committed to keeping one of their signature platforms always maintained for the citizens. We recommend you learn about what they do.
