Cut Resistance – the basics
The Right Cut Resistant Protection Makes a Difference
Cut resistant gloves and sleeves are designed to protect hands from direct contact with sharp objects such as glass and metal. The level of cut resistance provided is a combination of material composition and weight. Cut protection is improved by increasing its material weight by using high-performance materials such as Spectra or Dyneema, or by using composite yarns by combining stainless steel, fiberglass, synthetic yarns and high-performance yarns.

No Cut Protective Product Works If It Is NOT Worn!
Hands come in all shapes and sizes. A one-size-fits-all approach is simply ineffective. The correct fit is essential! It reduces the risk of injury and ensures a longer product life cycle. Workers are also more likely to wear a glove that fits properly and doesn’t slow them down.

OSHA Safety Requirement Guides
Hazards exist in every foodservice operation in many different forms: hot liquids, grease, steam, hot surfaces, sharp objects/edges, falling objects, cleaning chemicals, and a myriad of other potentially dangerous situations.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has cited employers for not protecting their employees from workplace hazards that may be mitigated or eliminated through the use of PPE. OSHA’s coverage of PPE, however, is broad and relies heavily on American National Standards Institute (ANSI) voluntary standards. Keep in mind that OSHA standards are only minimum standards, and employers can implement more stringent requirements at their discretion.
Foodservice: Cuts Are Not On The Menu
Almost every commercial kitchen contains sharp objects or surfaces that can lead to cuts and lacerations. Knives, slicers and glassware are essential tools in most restaurants, elevating the risk of someone getting cut with a sharp blade or broken glass – it’s not surprising that cut and laceration injuries are a concern. Review cut protection safety tips to keep hands working and productive for a lifetime.
