Grinders are one of the most frequently cited machines during OSHA machine safety inspections. This is frequently due to improperly adjusted work rests and tongue guards on bench/pedestal grinders, as well as a lack of ring testing for the grinding wheels. OSHA 29 CFR SubPart O 1910.215 is a “machine specific” (vertical) regulation with a number of requirements, which if left unchecked, are often cited by OSHA as violations. ANSI B11.9-2010 (Grinders) and ANSI B7.1 2000 (Abrasive Wheels) also apply.
