Slash Resistant Clothing Can Help Improve The Safety of Prison And Correctional Officers

Written by: Robert Kaiser

PPSS Group’s CEO Robert Kaiser has once again highlighted his firm’s key objective to further improve the personal safety of prison and correctional officers, and cut resistant clothing must play a part he says.

Strongly believing that thoroughly field tested cut resistant clothing can make a significant difference to the security and well being of officers he has very recently written an article, titled “Cut Resistant Clothing Can Help Improve The Safety of Prison And Correctional Officers”:

Recent news headlines back up his claim that slashing has become a regular occupational hazard for prison and correctional officers over the past few years.

The main purpose of slash resistant clothing

The main purpose of cut resistant clothing is to successfully reduce the risk of lacerations and also protect key arteries and blood vessels.

Attacks may be committed by skilled or trained inmates, who deliberately attack a vulnerable area to incapacitate the officer, and others may unintentionally slash limbs in a frantic attack.

The key objective is that cut resistant clothing foils such injury and keeps the wearer of such personal protective equipment (PPE) operational, unharmed and even more importantly alive.
