The dangerous blade is ultimately what causes lacerations. Slice is the only company to offer safety handles and safety blades.
Cutting tools like box cutters and utility knives are found in just about every industrial setting. But useful as they are, cutting tools are inherently dangerous. Every EHS manager is tasked with how to mitigate the hazard posed by these tools.
Cutting tool manufacturers have done their part by designing safety knives. Traditionally, this has meant creating handle features that minimize blade exposure. Gloves also help, but many employees take issue with how cumbersome they can be. The extra step of having gloves on hand and actually using them also poses an inconvenience that can result in employees foregoing this important safety protocol.
Even with these steps, however, the root of the problem remains: the dangerous blade is ultimately what causes lacerations.
Slice is the only company to offer safety handles and safety blades.
The Slice Finger-Friendly® Blade
Slice blades are made of an advanced ceramic—100 percent zirconium oxide, to be specific—and feature a proprietary grind that makes the cutting edge safe to the touch.
Other ceramic blades and traditional metal blades are overly sharp out of the box. For metal this is particularly necessary because the material dulls relatively quickly. Blades are at their most dangerous when they are overly sharp and when they’re too dull.
