Cut Resistant Shirts
CutPRO® high performance cut resistant shirts for employees of glass and metal production or processing firms are a highly effective and very reliable means of minimising the danger of unintentional cut injuries (lacerations). Especially when dealing with flat glass, float glass, plate glass or sheet glass it is of greatest importance to utilise the best possible PPE to effectively protect the employee’s body from cut injuries in case the glass breaks or shatters.
Of course, the top priority needs to be to supply appropriate information on all preventative safety measures as well as training on the handling of glass to all workers. However, unfortunately it is a matter of fact that cut injuries will continue to occur as long as human being exists and as long as human beings make mistakes. Human and mechanical mistakes can and will continue to take place, but we want to do our utmost to reduce that precise risk… and CutPRO® cut resistant shirts can help us reach this objective!
A research project carried out by The International Labour Organization in 2003/04 highlighted that of 263 glass employees at a one specific glass manufacturing facility 59.3 % had actually struggled with cut related injuries at work.
