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.
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.
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.
Because she was wearing the proper personal protective equipment, a major cut was avoided. She will gratefully return home to her life and the quality of the things she enjoys without injury.Download PDF
