Bench grinder shields are designed to minimize the debris and hazards associated with bench grinders and buffers. These standard-mount grinder shields are available in various sizes for protection from the swarf of bench or pedestal grinders. The frames are constructed of reinforced fiber nylon or heavy cast aluminum. Each shield is furnished with a threaded support rod. The transparent portion of the standard mount grinder shields is made of high-impact resistant polycarbonate to minimize scratching and provide durability.

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.
