Safety share: Abrasive wheel grinder safety
Abrasive wheel grinders use fast-spinning wheels to grind metals and other materials. The grinder wheel is fragile and if not treated properly, can fragment and fly apart in dangerous projectiles. Setup is critical to the safety of the operator.

Kicking off meetings with a safety share is a great way to break the ice, begin teambuilding from the onset of meetings and keep safety at the forefront of our minds each and every day. The Safety Share Library, binned by topic area, provides a variety of resources for your convenience.
All employees, groups and divisions are encouraged to submit safety shares for inclusion in the library. Submission details are available on Inside Argonne.
Each month a safety share submitted by an individual will be selected by Environment, Safety and Quality Assurance to receive a Spot Award for demonstrated safety leadership. The Spot Award program offers three award levels: gold ($100), silver ($50) and bronze ($25).
