The use of hand-held abrasive tools, or bench-mounted tools and hand-held workpieces can expose the operator to vibration and can lead to harmful conditions.
Minimise the risks by using the right abrasives that finish demanding tasks faster, with less pressure.
The selection of abrasive tools, products and systems have a significant impact on the noise generated when operating tools.
Switching abrasive products can be one way to help reduce abrasive noise levels.
Working with abrasive equipment can cause injury by direct or indirect contact. Always use machine guards, use the right product for the application, ensure the abrasive is fitted correctly and wear appropriate PPE.
Faster cutting and cooler running abrasives that require less operator pressure can help towards a safer workplace.
