SAFETY RECOMMENDATIONS FOR THE USE OF ABRASIVE PRODUCTS

PASS ON THIS LEAFLET TO THOSE USING THE ABRASIVE PRODUCT
The recommendations contained in this leaflet should be followed by all users of abrasive products in the interests of their personal safety

GENERAL PRINCIPLES OF SAFETY

Abrasive products improperly used can be very dangerous.

Be aware of the hazards likely during the use of abrasive products and observe the recommended precautions to be taken:

Use only abrasive products conforming to the highest standards of safety. These
products will bear the relevant EN standard number.

Never use a machine that is not in good working order or one with defective parts.
Employers should carry out a risk assessment on all individual abrasive processes to determine the appropriate protective measures necessary. They should ensure that their employees are suitably trained to carry out their duties.


This leaflet is only intended to provide basic safety recommendations. For more detailed information on the safe use of abrasive products, reference to our comprehensive Safety
