Don’t Overlook Your Bench Grinder Guards

Ferndale Safety has the best selection of bench grinder guards on the market. We cover you, from budget-friendly small shields to fully interlocked with laminated glass!

Keeping your work environment safe and in compliance with OSHA regulations is crucial for the well-being of your employees and your company. One regulation often overlooked is the proper use of bench grinders and their associated safety shields.

If your facility uses a bench grinder, it is important to check if the safety shields are in good condition.

Worn-out shields can pose a risk to employees and leave you vulnerable to safety deficiencies cited by OSHA. That’s why at Ferndale Safety, we offer a variety of safety shields, including the original electrically interlocked laminated glass shields, to protect your workers.

Offers Additional Protection to Safety Glasses

OSHA 29 CFR Subpart O 1910.215 is a regulation specifically for pedestal and bench grinders. Following this regulation, OSHA Standard 1926.303(c)(9) requires that all abrasive wheel employees be protected by eye protection equipment.

A safety shield on a grinder provided by Ferndale Safety protects workers against hazards such as flying debris and sparks and serves as additional eye protection.

In addition to having proper safety shields, it is also important to follow other OSHA guidelines. For example, the regulation specifies that the work rests must be adjusted to within 1/8 inch of the wheel and that the tongue guard/spark arrestor should never exceed 1/4 inch.

Neglecting these guidelines can result in safety deficiencies and potential harm to your employees.

Don’t take any chances regarding the safety of your workers and company. Make sure your bench grinders comply with OSHA regulations. Replace your worn-out bench grinder shields and follow OSHA regulations, which are crucial to ensuring a safe work environment. At Ferndale Safety, we provide the necessary equipment and information to help you meet these requirements and avoid potential safety deficiencies.
