Reduce the risks

Caregivers in mental health, psychiatry, special education teachers, parents with special needs, and even police officers or BOAs are at risk of being bitten, scratched or pinched.

Has this ever happened to you?

Bite, scratch, or pinch injuries can have serious consequences for yourself and your team members. Research has shown that a bite can cause all kinds of infections:

  • Hepatitis B
  • Hepatitis C
  • HSV syphilis
  • Tuberculosis Tuberculosis
  • Actinomycosis
  • Tetanus

And it’s not simply about infections, as the consequences of this complex behaviour can also cause mental stress, which could affect the quality of care you provide.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What’s a bite-resistant jacket?

    A bite-resistant jacket is a piece of clothing that can be used by yourself and other staff members exposed to complex or aggressive behaviour at work. Whether it’s pinching, scratching, biting or hitting, most staff members do not have the right equipment at hand to be and feel protected, which could result in serious (long-term) injuries.

     

  • Is it also fire retardant?

    Cut Tex PRO® is not fire retardant.

  • Can it be placed in the washing machine?

    Yes, no problem. We recommend washing at 40 degrees Celsius. Always check the washing label for all details.

  • How to order the jacket?
