Thinner gloves for better cut protection

Overall, work-related cutting injuries are decreasing. However, the minor cutting injuries may be increasing. Due to lack of effort and attention to the smaller risks, people are more often injured. The point I'm trying to make is this: even if the risks don't seem to be high, doesn't mean you should forget about protecting yourself.

Workers are often pressured by management to maintain detail oriented in a high paced work environment. Someone in their right state of mind realizes that sometimes these two don't mix very well. What management seems to forget is that injuries cost money too - and they're a lot pricier than protective gear and enough time for workers to be careful.

The problem

Gloves are one of those garments that people put aside because they're "in the way" when checking the work in detail. This is oddly paradoxical for us because that's exactly what we want them to be - in the way for those sharp edges to cut your hand. Nonetheless, we've taken your thoughts into account.

The solution

Knitted gloves are naturally thin and fitted for every handshape. They are sewn in one long thread, making it seamless all throughout. Mostly we use polyethylene fibres in our cut resistant knitted gloves. This fibre is very common for protective purposes and is often used in bulletproof vests and glass. So it seems only fitting to use polyethylene fibre in our gloves - it'll protect you while keeping out of the way for you to do what you need to do. However, depending on what level of cut protection you need there are several choices of dipping that you need to look into.

Make sure to protect yourself and your staff. It'll cost way less than medical expenses and it'll keep everybody happy.
