New design clinical waste sack holder

Vaco cartNice design concept for this new clinical waste sack holder/cart from Vaco.

Easy to clean in that the frame has far fewer components, and presumable lightweight and manoeuvrable, there are perhaps many practical benefits.

Regrettably, holding the upper bar, as shown, brings hands into contact with an area that much be prone to contamination during use, and how else might one push the cart from location to location?

Secondly, the NHS Firecode requires, unless it has recently been revised, that sacks are enclosed in a flameproof container, so this would not comply.

And lastly, while adding a handle so that the cart can be moved safely from A to B, a secure fitment to accommodate a sharps container would be an advantage. Notwithstanding, this seems to be a step in the right direction.
