As well as our practical testing, we are at hand to advise clients on the safety of products. For example, in the UK, we regularly evaluate products to The General Product Safety Regulations 2005 (Statutory Instrument 1803).
CATRA’s particular areas of expertise are:
- Safety of cutting edges on blades, knives and other sharp cutting items
- Sharpness of non-cutting edges for example on cutlery, metallic components, toys, tools
- Toxicity of metals, particularly where they are in contact with food
- Safe use of knives, tools, medical scalpels and utensils
