993 ® SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS Abrasive Operations Safety User Information WARNING: In normal grinding and finishing operations, material that is being removed from the work piece, such as burs, scale, dirt, weld slag or other residue, will breakaway with considerable force. Also any coated abrasives, will cause cloth and abrasive grain to be released into the atmosphere. The potential of serious injury exists for both the abrasive operator and others in the direct work area. To protect against this hazard, operators and others in the area MUST wear appropriate protective clothing and safety equipment such as SAFETY GOGGLES or FULL FACE SHIELDS , along with PROTECTIVE CLOTHING AND RESPIRATORY EQUIPMENT. All operators must follow the safety instructions as well as common safety practices to reduce the likelihood or severity of physical injury. 1. SAFETY GOGGLES: Approved safety goggles or full face shields MUST BE WORN. 2. GUARDS: Always keep all guards in place on any equipment and read operating equipment instructions. 3. SPEEDS: Always observe speed restrictions indicated on the abrasive product, containers, labels or printed material and the machine. 'MAX RPM' means: Maximum Revolutions Per Minute. THIS MUST NOT BE EXCEEDED UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE. 4. SHANK: When using an abrasive product or accessory with a shank, make sure the shank is fitted securely into the machine with no more than 5mm overhang between the chuck or collet. DO NOT ALLOW UNSAFE CONDITIONS: Worn bearings, bent spindles, unbalanced machines, unusual application, operator abuse or inappropriate use are considered unsafe conditions and may cause the abrasive product to fail. Specifically with bonded abrasives a hard impact may damage the product. Additionally, bonded abrasives must be used in accordance to their specific use-by date. Do not use, or continue to use, an abrasive product which is functioning improperly (i.e. out-of-balance, etc) as this increases the possibility for the abrasive to fail and cause injury. Any failure or unsafe condition should be evaluated and corrected immediately. NOTE: Safety data and instructions are typical and should not be construed as complete for the abrasive product and the equipment being used. Safety procedures may vary and should be specific to the equipment being used, speeds of operations, material being finished, selected abrasives, and other parameters.
