CutPRO® Cut Proof Clothing
We at CutPRO® Cut Proof Clothing are truly determined to help the glass industry around the globe to reduce the number and severity of cut injuries and laceration. Our ultimate objective is to eliminate such injuries at some point in the future. We will not stop until this goal has been reached.
Our 2020 product range is the result of our product consultants visiting several plants and locations, meeting with senior health & safety professionals and speaking to glass workers on the 'shop floor'. By doing we have established exceptionally close relationships with them... and we have learned a lot!
It is these relationships and the information gathered from those, that have resulted in new and further improved garment designs. All customer feedback, extended research and a clear understanding of the precise work environment have proven invaluable. It was a combination of those things that led to the development of our latest garment designs.
Understanding operational risks and designing the appropriate cut proof clothing
Fully understanding that cut proof clothing and PPE is mandatory in work environments where cuts and lacerations are a potential risk, we also wanted to ensure the end user is comfortable and excited about wearing the garments… sometimes for up to 12 hours at a time… sometimes in extremely hot and humid conditions.
We understand the temperature variation between the cold end and the hot end of a float glass plant can pose an extreme challenge to comfort and breathability. A factor which turned out to be of greatest importance when designing the latest garments, as ‘wearability’ is crucial to those men and women.
As highlighted in the ‘International Labour Organization Encyclopaedia of Occupational Health and Safety’, there is one main risk for professionals working in the glass manufacturing sector. Cuts, lacerations and soft tissues puncture wounds are the most likely types of injuries.
According to the UK's Health and Safety Executive (HSE):
“...the handling of flat glass involves the risk of serious personal injury… HSE experience has shown that although the risk is higher in factories where flat glass is manufactured… serious accidents continue to happen in premises where glass is subsequently handled and processed… large sheets of glass are routinely handled using vacuum lifting frames, these can involve the risk of being struck by falling glass… appropriate protective clothing should be worn when glass is handled manually”.
We believe that CutPRO® Cut Proof Clothing is very much your ultimate choice. Please feel free and contact us and we can help you establish the difference between your current PPE and workwear and our highly acclaimed brand of high performance cut resistant clothing.
According to the ‘International Labour Organization’ about 93% of the lost workday cases in the glass manufacturing sector results from injuries rather than occupational illnesses.
The handling of flat glass involves the risk of serious personal injury. Accidents continue to happen especially in premises where glass is processed. Appropriate protective clothing should be worn particularly when glass is handled manually, and I strongly believe we can deem CutPRO® Cut Proof Clothing as appropriate.
All CutPRO® garments are fully CE marked and made from the highly acclaimed and thoroughly field-tested Cut-Tex® PRO fabric.
We are extremely passionate about reducing the risk of laceration and cut injuries. Our dream is to eliminate cut injuries in the glass industry. We won’t stop until we have achieved preciously that.
