Safety Alert Warns About Angle Grinder Safety

Workplace Health and Safety Queensland released a safety alert to highlight the risks associated with removing guards on angle grinders or using the incorrect discs.

The warning comes after a worker was fatally injured while operating an angle grinder. The man suffered injuries to his chest after being struck by a piece of a broken disc in February this year.

The alert warned that a major cause of the accident was use of cutting discs that were too large for the angle grinder, so don’t make this mistake. Find out more at http://content.safetyculture.com.au/news/index.php/03/safety-alert-guards-discs-angle-grinders-issued/#.VwG0APl97IW
