When handheld portable grinders are used on the job they have a unique set of safety precautions that all workers should be aware of including preparation of a safe work area, PPE requirements and equipment selection and inspection. 

Portable grinders are handheld power tools that are used for grinding, cutting or polishing. These versatile tools can be used for a variety of tasks and are commonly used on construction sites and in industrial shops.

Handheld portable grinders, with their own set of unique hazards, can be dangerous and can cause serious injuries or even start a fire causing property damage.

Bench grinder safety awareness is important.  Some hazards include improper installation of the wheel or a worn-out wheel can lead to malfunction, becoming an explosion hazard and flying object hazard. Visual inspections, proper training of installation, and ring testing can prevent this from happening.
