This will prevent the blade from coming into contact with yourself or anyone else in the vicinity of where you are working. Finally, wear gloves. Plastic banding or twine are used on almost all unitized pallets in industry today. These need to be removed by the user to access the product on the skid. Zip ties are commonly found throughout facilities for multiple applications.

A safety knife is a type of knife that has special features such as protective guards, auto-retractable blades and blunt tips. These tools are used to prevent lacerations and repetitive motion injuries.

Safety knives are important because they can help you avoid injury and make your work easier. Safety knives are designed to protect both the user and others around them from injury.

Safety knives protect people by making sure they don't cut themselves by engineering out the hazards. The sharp edge of a regular knife can easily cause serious lacerations. Safety knives are designed to prevent this type of accident.

The best way to evaluate which safety knives are best for your cutting tasks is by conducting a free safety knife evaluation and discussing your specific situation with a safety cutting professional.

The two most common injuries caused by unsafe knives in the workplace and in factories are lacerations and repetitive motion injuries.

Lacerations are the most common injury caused by unsafe knives in the workplace. These occur when a person's body comes into contact with a blade that is being used.

Repetitive motion injuries are also common with poorly engineered knives in the workplace. These occur when someone uses a knife repetitively for long periods of time. This can lead to carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, or other musculoskeletal issues.
