It is regularly reported than many workplace injuries are totally avoidable and that the correct, and enforced use of PPE (personal protective equipment) would remedy the situtaion. With over 39% of non fatal injuries caused by cuts and lacerations to hands there is little reason for an employer not to invest in cut resistant gloves and cut resistant clothing, or for the employee not to wear those provided. Current materials and manufacturing processes used in the Flexion Global range are lightweight, breathable, stylish and highly dextrous.
Here are just a few industries that require cut-resistant clothing and gloves. Our EN388:2016 Cut Level 5 products have been extensively tested, and have been specifically designed to be lightweight, stylish and very comfortable to wear for users in all these different industries. You can find out more about the testing to achieve Cut Level 5 here.
