New box cutter safety guidance


A new focus sheet that describes how to use box cutters safely is now available for University units and departments to download, print and share with personnel who use box cutters.

University personnel who use box cutters should follow the steps in the Box Cutter Safety Focus Sheet to avoid potential injuries before, during and after use. Choosing a safety box cutter specifically designed to reduce or eliminate injuries, such as the Klever Kutter, is a key element to staying safe.

All accidents and injuries involving University personnel, including cuts and lacerations, must be reported to EH&S after providing immediate first aid and reporting it to your supervisor.

Contact the EH&S Occupational Safety and Health team at (206) 543-7388 for more information.
