450x450x10503-AutoRetractableBoxCutter-1_0.png.pagespeed.ic.WQ6brzJK0I

"The employees didn't care for the safety knives — they want to use folding razor blades." No, really, I'm not fabricating this quote — an end-user company actually just emailed me the above statement. If a company doesn't have a dedicated Safety Professional I often have no choice but to work with someone who doesn't have the training, knowledge, or authority to enforce whats right for their organization vs. what's popular internally.

Sometimes Metal Isn’t So Bad …

Everyday we work with Fortune-1000 companies to replace metal blades in their facilities with safer, more cost effective Slice ceramic blades.  However, it surprised me to see the traction we've received with our all-metal 100% stainless steel Slice 10420 Scissors —     With customers ranging from cheese factories in Wisconsin to pharmaceutical plants in the United Kingdom — and everything in between (including the Museum of Modern Art in New York).  What draws them to these freakishly shaped scissors?
