    I joined a new gym a few months ago and have noticed that the toilet cubicles have sharps bins for putting needles in after you have injected yourself. Should i be concerned ? is this now becoming normal ?
    its a normal gym and not one of those body building ones but has a free weights, fixed weights and cardio area. I emailed the company and their response is that they included ut as a result of a risk analysis

    Sounds like the gym is looking out for your safety - would not want to step on a used needle.

    I think this is pretty common my gym introduced a sharp objects box disposal type of thing in the toilets I assumed it was for razors

    Wow, maybe I'm totally out of the loop on this one, I was surprised. I've never heard of this, but it sounds productive. I'd just have a number of questions about potential issues, however.

    I'm on steroids right now and I can assure you that such a thing as roid rage is an invention of someone's wild fantasies and does not exist.

    Anyway, one would have to be pretty fucking dumb to do injections in a gym locker room. Inject, recap the needle and throw it in the normal trash at home.
