Cuts, Slashes & Lacerations

Knives, blades and bladed machines are commonplace in the working environment, used by heart surgeons to tree surgeons and everyone in between. 

Knives and sharp blades can be dangerous. We all know that. So long as they are well maintained and used by fully trained staff with the correct PPI then that danger can be kept to a minimum. Where we tend to see problems is when: – 

  • They are used by poorly trained staff – or even staff who haven’t been trained at all
  • The staff are not supervised or monitored leading to ‘corners being cut’
  • The machines or knives are not properly looked after, or they are broken 
  • PPI equipment is either not available or it is damaged 

Time and time again we hear employers come out with the same excuses – they were going to do the training next month, the machine was due to be fixed soon, the new PPI equipment was on order, etc, etc. That is simply unacceptable and no defence, especially if you are the one who has suffered an injury that could have and should have been avoided.
