Manchester NHS trust bans metal paper fasteners

Health bosses have banned metal paper fasteners from GP surgeries, clinics and offices — because they are deemed a safety risk.

Staff at NHS Manchester are no longer allowed to use to the steel binders after a member of staff hurt their finger on one.

A memo sent to all of the health trust’s employees said the fasteners are now prohibited.

Instead it warns staff to use plastic ones to avoid injury — and urges them to dispose of the metal clips carefully.

Astonished staff have described the move as nannying — via redwolf.newsvine.com
