Glass Safety When Handling Glass

It is frequently an awkward shape to carry and can be slippy in the hands, resulting in a limited grip. That being said, it is critical to always handle glass with extreme caution to ensure your safety and the safety of those around you at all times and with as little risk as possible.


We cannot emphasize enough the importance of lifting glass safely, which is why we are bringing you this blog post today. Whether you are a professional glazier or simply want to learn more about the importance of glass handling, read on to learn how to handle glass safely, how to do it, and what precautions to take when handling glass.


1. Glass for Handling

Handling glass will be part of your daily job if you work in the glazing industry. You must understand how to properly handle glass. Glass is a hazard that can easily cause injury if not handled correctly. Some of the most important factors to consider when lifting, maneuvering, and handling glass safely and as safely as possible are:

Have the proper tools to assist you in lifting.

Wear the proper PPE to protect yourself and reduce your risk of injury.

Be mindful of your surroundings and uneven terrain.

Hire assistance and keep the weight of the load in mind.

Keep in mind how fragile glass is and always handle it with care.

Get some glass transport equipment to help you safely move large glass loads.


2. The Importance of Glass Safety in Glass Handling

If you do not follow the safety precautions outlined above, you endanger yourself and others. Minor and severe cuts and scratches, being crushed, strain injuries, and even amputations and death are all risks.


3. Guidelines for Safe Glass Handling

Take the following points into consideration when handling any glass. These tips will assist you in lifting and handling glass as safely as possible.


3.1 Use Both Hands

Glass is an awkward material to hold, and you can only grip it with your hands. When handling the glass with your bare hands, always use two hands rather than one.


Having two hands on the glass ensures a safer hold and ensures that if one hand begins to slip, the other hand will still have hold of the glass and you can safely navigate it to wherever it needs to go. Carrying glass with your hands is fine for a short period, but if you need to carry glass for an extended period, you should use an appropriate glass lifting tool.


3.2 Keep by Your Side

When carrying glass with your hands or with the help of a tool, make sure it is at your side. This allows you to see where you're going as well as any obstacles or uneven ground in your path.


Carrying a magnifying glass in front of you would obstruct your vision, and carrying it above your head is a no-no. This is extremely dangerous; if the glass were to knock, break, and shatter, it would shatter over you, causing a variety of nasty injuries.


Carrying glass above your head would put a lot of strain on your head, neck, and back. In the glazing industry, we always want to avoid strains.


3.3 Seek Assistance

If you require assistance, request it. Having someone assist you with carrying a load of glass can significantly reduce risks and hazards. When it comes to handling materials as delicate and fragile as glass, which is always prone to breaking, two hands are always better than one. Large sheets of glass should be carried by at least two people. You will need to communicate effectively with one another as you transport the glass to the desired location.


3.4 Use PPE

Wear the proper PPE. If you're working on a construction site, you'll need gloves, safety goggles, steel-toe boots, and a hard hat. Wearing the proper equipment and inspecting it for flaws before putting it on is critical. Wear it until you have a replacement if you notice or suspect a flaw.
