REDHAWK NAMES DR. DREW PINSKY AS NATIONAL SPOKESPERSON
Darcy Klug is CEO of Lafayette-based RedHawk Holdings Corp., which acquired the rights to the SANDD (Sharps and needles destruction device) mini in 2015 and redesigned the unit before putting it back out for sale this year. The company recently partnered with Dr. Drew Pinsky as its national spokesperson.
It is estimated that nearly 1 million needle stick injuries occur every year in the U.S. health care industry. The second-largest incidents of workplace injuries are with recycling workers because of improper disposal of needles. Whether you are at home or a clinic, responsible needle disposal is a necessary task for everyone who receives injections.
