HexArmor’s food-safe glove saves worker from massive cut

Knife injuries are common food preparation, such as cuts to the fingers or hand, and can be severe in both potential for bacteria to get inside the cut and for significant blood loss. The good news? Most cuts can be prevented with the proper precautions.

The problem

While cutting a sweet potato in half, an associate accidentally cut all the way through it and into her hand. She immediately dropped the knife and pulled off her new blue glove to check for a cut.

The solution

Not only was she surprised to see that there was no blood, but there wasn’t even the slightest sign of a cut.

That’s because she was wearing the Helix® 3033 food-safe glove from HexArmor,® a 13-gauge knit glove with 360° cut protection, which was being used as an underglove solution.
