Injection Safety - Minnesota Dept. of Health

Injection Safety

Injection safety, or safe injection practices, refers to the measures taken by health professionals to perform injections safely.

  • As defined by the World Health Organization, a safe injection does not harm the recipient, does not expose the provider to any avoidable risks and does not result in waste that is dangerous for the community.
