Metal: drilling, grinding, milling, angle grinding
Mechanical work involving the drilling, grinding, milling or angle grinding of steel components produces shavings and particles; flying sparks are a particular hazard when angle grinding. A pair of safety goggles and a protection class FFP2 respirator should be worn for adequate protection against these dangers. An FFP3 respirator should be selected for work with high-alloy steels. You can find product suggestions for this purpose below. Please ensure all appropriate and requisite personal protective equipment (PPE) is worn, as offered by uvex.
