The matter of preventing cuts and other wounds caused by knives in the workplace as well as at home is a serious issue. All too often Accident and Emergency units have to treat injuries which can sometimes be fatal due to knife wounds.
In many working environments, it is impossible to eliminate the use of hand knives because they are essential for a wide variety of occupations. Even the most skilled and careful workers suffer lapses of concentration at times which can lead to accidents.
Safety knives, such as those offered by Moving Edge, can significantly reduce the risks of injury through cuts which are most frequently caused by a conventional knife slipping during the cutting action. Most injuries are to the fingers, hands and arms.
There is also the chance for conventional knives and blades to quite literally ‘fall into the wrong hands’ especially if they are removed from their place of work. Investing in Moving Edge safety knives once more reduces the potential for accidental injury as well as the even more serious problem of knife crime.
In the plastics processing industry for example, HSE statistics suggest that hand knife injuries typically account for 25-50% of all lost time accidents. The food industry and locations where packaging materials have to be slit open are also prone to high levels of cut-related accidents.
Damaged stock due to accidental slitting by sharp knives is a further headache. This costs businesses substantial sums of wasted money. Moving Edge safety knives have been designed to prevent damage when slitting and perform as effectively as an open bladed knife.
So, make the safe choice for both user and product protection - reach out for Moving Edge.
