Grinders Industrial Tools & Solutions Products

We understand the importance of a safe work environment, and how training is the first step to a safe operation of any machine.

Grinding is a job that has to be taken seriously as it might pose as a threat to our health. The equipment used at work must be handled properly and the grinding situation itself has to be treated with respect. The forces involved can be a source of danger if safety aspects are overlooked. The operator should always be extra careful.

Here is the checklist that an operator should consider before starting to work:
  ✔ Check the free speed of the tool, so that it cannot rotate faster than the maximum rpm stated on the wheel
  ✔ Use a wheel guard when grinding with a grinding wheel Use the right dimension of grinding wheel, so that the grinding wheel’s rotational speed (in rpm) is not exceeded
  ✔ Check that the grinding wheel isn’t cracked or otherwise damaged
  ✔ Check that the right flanges are used, they’re attached properly, and are smooth with no trace of burr or flash
  ✔ Use personal protective clothing or other safety equipment provided like goggles, ear protectors, gloves, helmets, masks, etc.
  ✔ Test run in a safe enclosed area, e.g., beneath the workbench
  ✔ Ensure tool maintenance is performed regularly
  ✔ Always consult national and international standards and regulations on safety

Always remember prevention is better than cure. Taking careful preventive measures can help you avert accidents at work.
