Outstanding Cut Resistant Clothing For Glass Workers
Manual handling in glass processing and production has for many years been leading to cut injuries and laceration. CutPRO® is a highly acclaimed brand of certified and dependable cut resistant clothing for glass worker, designed to significantly reduce the risk of injuries.
Lifting sheets of glass, laying on a bench for cutting, and then placing them onto racks for dispatch are common tasks and pose a high risk to glass workers.
According to RIDDOR (2019) more than a third of all injuries in the UK glass industry are caused by moving, lifting and carrying glass. According to the US Bureau of Labour Statistics (2018) nearly 20% of all injuries in glass and glass product manufacturing involve a cut, laceration, or puncture.
