Please share the attached Safety Alert with all crews and shop employees. Although this incident involved a portable grinder, there are lessons to be learned while using any portable power tool. It is important to understand the use of the tool and the proper use of any accessories that are available for the equipment. The User’s Manual explains any precautions or additional safeguards to be used when using different accessories. This will also be discuss during next month’s safety meetings. Good lessons to take home as well.
