1. Some Hand Protection is cut proof: False. While it is true that significant advancement has been made in CR technology (i.e. Kevlar, Dyneema, Stainless Steel) affording us greater degrees of cut resistance. It would be a misconception to categorize any hand protection as cut proof. Cut “resistant” is the key terminology in the discussion of protective gloves.
2. Cut Resistant hand protection is too costly: False. This is good place to endorse our Sentinel Solutions program. The Sentinel Solutions is workplace analysis and assessment of the type of hand protection currently being used considering replacement costs, average wear time, number of injuries, etc. We can show you mathematically how investing in the appropriate hand protection will ultimately save you money over time. The old cliché is relevant to the Sentinel – you get what pay for. Let one of our sales professionals do a Sentinel program and you will instantly be a better advised consumer of hand protection. Consider this government statistic: Hand injuries are the #2 leading cause of work-related injury and the most preventable. On average a US automotive worker earns 33.00/hr and the average reported hand injury results in 6 days off work. Do the math.
3. Any type of glove offers some cut resistance: False. It is important to note that leather, cotton and synthetic gloves offer little to no cut resistance whatsoever.
