Blade & band handling

Our natural tendency is to reach for falling objects...Blade and band handling

  • Always wear cut-resistant gloves
  • Never run your finger over the cutting edge of the blade/band
  • Always lay blades/bands on the floor
  • Do not prop them on a ledge where they could fall
  • Always move the top blade out of the way before changing the bottom band
  • Changing slitters is a one person job
