The PPSS Group’s key objective is to protect security officers as well as police and prison officers by helping to to reduce the number of knife and workplace violence-related injuries. The company has recently seen record sales for its SlashPRO slash-resistant clothing brand which offers tested, certified and reliable levels of cut resistance.
Poverty and social exclusion, religious and political extremism, drug abuse, the spread of social media and serious mental illnesses have all been blamed for the rise in knife crime, with the news of individuals grabbing a kitchen knife and causing serious harm and injury to others seemingly becoming the norm.
Knives have also become the ‘weapon of choice’ for many so-called ‘lone wolf’ attackers due to the lack of planning required to conduct a knife attack whether against an individual or a mass group.
SlashPRO slash-resistant clothing is made from 100% Cut-Tex PRO, a cut-resistant fabric made in Great Britain. According to the manufacturer, the fabric is comfortable to wear, skin friendly and Latex-free.
Robert Kaiser, CEO of the PPSS Group, explained: “Slashing dangers are now relatively frequent for workers in the security and law enforcement world. It has become a realistic and daily occupational risk. The cutting of an artery or a main blood vessel can cause rapid blood loss, shock and even fatality. It’s our mission to protect those professionals at risk with a range of easy-to-wear, slash-resistant clothing.”
Kaiser added: “There are men and women out there who have made a professional choice in their lives to protect other human beings, facilities, venues, events and infrastructure from the bad guys. We at the PPSS Group genuinely believe those men and women have the moral and legal right to be appropriately equipped to do their job safely. Slash-resistant clothing can help to save valuable lives”.
