Cut Resistant Clothing For
Glass Workers

We know that your employees’ health and safety are paramount. That’s why we work with leading glass manufacturers to ensure Kozane® offers the very best protection against cuts and lacerations caused by moving, lifting and handling glass.

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 read 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.
