Box cutters are in almost every workers tool belt. They’re an essential tool and also a serious hazard.
An easy way to reduce the hazard is to use auto-retracting box cutters. There are two types. This one automatically retracts, but has a thumb button override. This one automatically retracts once pressure on the blade is released. Watch the video to see it in action.
Regardless of which one you choose, both are much safer than traditional box cutters.
