Stay Safe – Safety Knives within the Workplace

Safety knives can considerably lessen the risks of injuries through cuts which are commonly triggered with a conventional knife sliding throughout the cutting action. Most injuries will be to the fingers, hands and arms.

Once the knife has been purchased it’s important to recognise the signs of a dulling blade.  If you notice an increase in the amount of force needed to cut material or see that the blade is tearing material rather than cutting it, it’s time to get a new blade.  Cutting with a dull blade can lead to a variety of unsafe situations such as 1) applying so much force that the blade bends or breaks; 2) a loss of balance when the blade slips free of the material; or 3) we become so focused on trying to make the cut that we quit paying attention to the path of blade travel, leading to an injury.

Pennline offer a variety of Safety knives suitable for many different uses.
