What it contains

Noises from hand-held tools, like grinders, pedestals and bench grinders, can exceed noise exposure standards, making them dangerous for workers. This document advises workplaces  how to manage noise by:

  • following a hierarchy of control measures
  • finding alternatives to using grinders, such as buying pre-cut or pre-fabricated materials
  • improving production processes to use quieter grinders
