Anyone in the office from the new employee to the crafty office veteran can fall prey to a pain unlike any other, the dreaded paper cut. Unlike many other skin cuts from a razor blade, knife or even scissors. Paper deposits material in the wound as it cuts, which causes the sting that after a paper cut you won’t soon forget. They’re often caused by a single rogue sheet that’s been slightly dislocated from a stack of paper so that the handler doesn’t notice a sharp protruding edge.
You can avoid paper cuts by being careful not to drag hands or fingers along the edges of a paper pile. If you regularly handle large stacks or reams of paper, help protect your hands with creams, gloves and even the old fashioned finger guards. It is truly better to be safe, than sorry.
