Here is some safety information related to working with an edge polisher.

Job Steps:

  1. Preparation and inspection of the work area
  • Identify and mark the work area where the edge polisher will be used.
  • Ensure the work area is free from any potential hazards, such as trip hazards or overhead obstructions.
  • Inspect the edge polisher for any damage or defects that may affect its safe operation.
  • Check that all guards and safety features are in place and functioning correctly.
  • Ensure that all necessary personal protective equipment (PPE), such as safety glasses and hearing protection, are available and worn by all personnel in the work area.
  1. Set up the edge polisher
  • Position the edge polisher in the work area, ensuring that it is stable and securely anchored.
  • Connect the power supply to the edge polisher, ensuring that the power cable is free from any damage or defects.
  • Turn on the edge polisher and allow it to reach its operating speed.
  • Adjust the height of the polishing wheel so that it is level with the edge of the workpiece.
  1. Polishing the edge
  • Place the workpiece on the worktable, ensuring that it is securely held in place by the clamps.
  • Begin the polishing process by guiding the edge of the workpiece along the spinning polishing wheel, using a steady and even pressure.
  • Avoid pushing the workpiece too hard or too fast, as this may cause the edge to chip or break.
  • Continue polishing until the desired finish is achieved, taking care to maintain a consistent speed and pressure throughout the process.
  • When finished, turn off the edge polisher and allow the polishing wheel to come to a complete stop before removing the workpiece.
  1. Clean up
  • Disconnect the power supply from the edge polisher.
  • Remove any debris or waste material from the work area and dispose of it in the appropriate manner.
  • Store the edge polisher in a safe and secure location, ensuring that it is protected from damage and unauthorized use.
  • Ensure that all PPE is removed and properly stored.


  • Electrical hazards from power cables and the edge polisher itself.
  • Mechanical hazards from the rotating polishing wheel and the movement of the workpiece.
  • Noise hazards from the operation of the edge polisher.
  • Tripping hazards from cluttered work areas or cables.

Risk Controls:

  • Conduct a hazard assessment before starting work.
  • Ensure the edge polisher is in good working condition and all guards and safety features are in place.
  • Ensure all personnel wear appropriate PPE.
  • Ensure the work area is free from potential hazards and clutter.
  • Ensure the edge polisher is properly anchored to prevent movement.
  • Use clamps to securely hold the workpiece in place.
  • Use steady and even pressure when polishing the edge.
  • Do not operate the edge polisher unless authorised and trained to do so.

Gary’s Safety Tips

Hey there, it’s your safety guy Gary, and today we’re gonna talk about something that’s near and dear to my heart: safety in the workplace. Specifically, we’re gonna dive into the dangers and safety recommendations for working with an edge polisher.

Now, I know some of y’all might be thinking, “Gary, what’s an edge polisher?” Well, my friends, an edge polisher is a machine that’s used to polish and shape the edges of materials like granite, marble, and other types of stone. It’s a powerful tool that can produce some seriously beautiful results, but it’s also a machine that requires a lot of care and attention to use safely.

First things first, let’s talk about some of the dangers associated with working with an edge polisher. One of the biggest dangers is the risk of physical injury. The machine has spinning blades that can cause serious harm if they come into contact with your body. You could easily lose a finger, or even your entire hand if you’re not careful.

Another danger is the risk of inhaling harmful dust and debris. When you’re using an edge polisher, it can produce a lot of dust and particles that can get into your lungs and cause serious respiratory problems over time. This is why it’s important to wear a mask and proper respiratory protection when working with an edge polisher.

So, now that we’ve talked about some of the dangers, let’s dive into some safety recommendations for working with an edge polisher. The first thing you need to do is make sure you’re wearing the proper safety gear. This means wearing safety glasses, gloves, and a mask to protect your eyes, hands, and lungs from harm.

Next, you need to make sure you’re using the machine correctly. This means reading the instructions carefully and following them to the letter. If you’re not sure how to use the machine, don’t be afraid to ask for help. It’s better to ask for assistance than to risk injuring yourself or others.

Another important safety recommendation is to keep the work area clean and organised. This means clearing away any debris or dust that’s produced by the machine, and making sure that the area around the machine is free from any obstacles or hazards that could cause you to trip or fall.

You also need to make sure you’re using the right type of material for the machine. Some edge polishers are designed to work with specific types of materials, so make sure you’re using the right one for the job. Using the wrong material can cause serious damage to the machine and put you at risk of injury.

Finally, it’s important to take breaks and rest when you need to. Using an edge polisher can be tiring work, and it’s important to take breaks to prevent fatigue and reduce the risk of injury. Make sure you’re taking breaks every hour or so, and make sure you’re drinking plenty of water to stay hydrated.

In conclusion, working with an edge polisher can be a great way to produce beautiful results, but it’s also a machine that requires a lot of care and attention to use safely. By following these safety recommendations, you can help prevent injuries and keep yourself and others safe while using the machine. So, be smart, be safe, and happy polishing!
