Many industries and workplaces utilise knives, scissors and snips for general-purpose work and daily tasks including cutting strapping, plastering, Kevlar, electrical wire, rubber, leather, rope, and twine as well as opening cartons and boxes.

So, for these workplaces, not only using a cutting tool for its convenience, ease of use and access is important, but safety is paramount.

Cutting tools like knives are a common source of injury, with many resulting in hospital visits daily.

Knife-related injuries often happen when knives slip during cutting or trimming. In most cases the blade encounters the worker’s other hand, causing a laceration to the hand or fingers. Injuries can also occur to other parts of the body, including the hand or arm operating the knife.

Knives can be useful tools in the workplace when the right knife is chosen, like a safety knife or shrink wrap slitter, and in the hands of a trained worker, they can be used safely.

However, a snip like Sterling’s Black Panther GEN II Rounded Tip Industrial Snips is a safer option offering an effective solution to the use of knives, significantly reducing the risk of injury. There are various benefits to using this a very worthy all-purpose tool.
