I a in the Glass industy as well and hope that this will give me better ideas not only for hand protection, but for the rest of the body as well.  We have found a shirt that works well, but are looking for chaps or aprons.  Any suggestions?

To my knowledge, there are no cut resistant gloves that are both wwashable and food safety compliant. However, what I have recommended to some clients asking for these multiple uses is to get oversized disposable food safety compliant gloves to we worn over a low mil cut resistant glove.

 

@Jason, I would recomend the exact opttosite for your workers who are going to be using hammers all day. Get some thin cut resistant gloves and have some anti-shock gloves worn over them.

 

All of these gloves are avaliable at legionsafety.com

Let me know if there are any further questions.

I have one question. I`m not able ask workmen too use cut resistance gloves on  food safety gloves due to high humidity.

Does any one can recommend me to cut resistance gloves which is washable and also complying food safety standard?

For the CR glove experts out there... I have about 103 cut resistant gloves on SafetyEcho.com right now, including full line-ups of Ansell and Showa Best.  If there's a fantastic manufacturer that I'm missing, let me know.  So far I just have Ansell, Showa Best, and Superior

Jason, in that case, you may want to continue to pursue your specific requirements directly with the companies that specialize in anti-vibration. I am sure they would love getting some direct end-user feedback to use for future product development.

I was finally able to convince the boss to go Kevlar, and as of today, our Trim Dept. is the first to have Kevlar gloves as a MANDATORY PPE. Within the next 30 days, we will be Kevlar mandatory facility wide...

Jason, you may want to investigate Impacto Protective Products. They offer some anti-vibration glove products made with Kevlar® for cut protection. Styles BG790-00 and BG790-40.

Hi to all, I work in the glass industry and feel that this group will increase my knowledge and give me some good insights and ideas.
Comment by Paul Brown on March 3, 2009 at 2:52pm
Trying to broaden my knowledge of cut-resistant technologies and wondered if anyone had any insight to share about HexArmor, Koreflex (Damascus), or TurtleSkin? Just looking for some basic info on what exactly they consist of (are they engineered yarns?) and some performance data.

Thanks.
