Safety Cutting Knives Worker Protections

Safety cutting knives are essential for reducing workplace accidents by incorporating features designed to prevent lacerations and punctures. They’re designed with user safety in mind, and can include retractable blades, safety guards, rounded tips, ergonomic handles, and other features to minimize the risk of injury. By using these specialized tools, instead of pocketknives or traditional scissors, companies can significantly lower the chances of cutting injuries, and increase worker productivity.
