That’s why we work with leading PPE manufacturers to ensure the very best protection against cuts and lacerations caused by moving, lifting, and handling glass. Kozane® fabrics can be used effectively to create cut-resistant clothing for glass workers, offering advanced protection and comfort.

Revolutionising cut-resistant clothing for glass workers

In the glass industry, manual handling is often unavoidable. Selecting and lifting stock, laying on a bench for cutting, and placing in racks ready for dispatch are common tasks that pose a high risk to workers.

Over a third of all injuries in the UK glass industry are caused by moving, lifting, and carrying (RIDDOR, 2019), while in the US, nearly 20% of all injuries in glass and glass product manufacturing involve a cut, laceration, or puncture (US Bureau of Labour Statistics, 2018). With the right personal protective equipment (PPE), accidental injuries like this can be avoided, keeping workers safe and saving your company both time and money.
