Plant was experiencing 168 lacerations per year before HexArmor® was implemented
One of the largest steel producers in the world had a plant operation that was experiencing a dangerous amount of laceration injuries per year. Safety professionals brought in a variety of different PPE technologies to combat the high rate of injury, but could not find a solution able to perform at an acceptable level. They estimated $11,000 absorbed for every injury, not including lost time and productivity.
HexArmor® Safety Specialists Implement Solution
HexArmor® was called to evaluate numerous applications and investigate the types of hazards employees were encountering. After analyzing the company's needs, HexArmor® recommended a full-line of hand and arm solutions that would not only solve the high laceration issue, but would also save the steel producer a large amount of its safety budget. Recommended solutions "saved the steel producer over $1.7 million in injury expenses." The plant had "ZERO recordable lacerations after one year of use" and continues that rate today. The company mandated "HexArmor® products are required to be worn" for certain applications.
