Safety Advisories:

  • A company had two incidents within a week involving the knives they use. The worker was attempting to cut the “O” ring while using the OLFA style knife. The worker did not remove his finger from the switch which allowed the retractable knife to stay out. His hand then slipped and cut through his glove and required 3 stitches. They have now switched to WISS auto-retracting knife.
