Do not use your knee pad as a cutting board.

Wear gloves when cutting for a splice or belt

Never walk with a knife open.

Know where the blade is at all times while cutting and where your free hand is positioned.

Use a sharp knife, not a dull one.

When cutting something overhead ALWAYS cut away from your body and make sure you have solid footing.

Use the proper tool for the job. Do not use a knife as a screw driver, etc.
