We at CutPRO® Cut Resistant Clothing are truly determined to help glass producing and processing firms 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.
Today we are officially announcing our 2020 product range, and we are doing so after we have established very close relationships with some of the world’s largest producers of float and high-performance glass.
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 into potential risks and a much clearer understanding of the precise work environment have proven invaluable in the development of all new garment designs.
Our senior product consultants, headed by Senior Product Consultant Eve Ichim have visited several plants and locations, met with a number of specialised senior health & safety professionals and spoken to many glass workers, allowing everyone to have an input.
Understanding operational risks and designing the appropriate cut resistant clothing
Fully understanding that cut resistant 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’ has become crucial to those men and women on the ‘shop floor’ as well as those charged with the purchase of PPE.
As highlighted in the ‘International Labour Organization Encyclopaedia of Occupational Health and Safety’, the main risks for professionals working in the glass manufacturing sector are cuts, lacerations and soft tissues puncture wounds.
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 Resistant 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.
Our passion and how to get in touch with us
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.
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 Resistant Clothing as appropriate.
All CutPRO® garments are fully CE marked and made from the highly acclaimed and thoroughly field-tested Cut-Tex® PRO fabric.
