Staying Safe When Using Diamond Saws and Blades

In order to prevent accidents and/or injury, contractors who use equipment should understand the hazards of misuse, improper maintenance, and failure to comply with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards.

OSHA Compliance

Equipment operators need to follow basic safety procedures and safeguards associated with equipment, according to current OSHA standards. Additionally, all operators should know the potential hazards associated with these tools, as well as how to prevent them.


How to Avoid Kickback When Cutting Concrete

When it comes to serious power cutter accidents, kickbacks are at the top of the common cause list. Here are a few tips to avoid kickback:

  • Avoid using a diamond blade that has worn segments, or the core may get pinched in the cut.

  • Keep the blade straight while you’re cutting. Even a slight twist can cause the blade to become pinched.

  • Always keep your work material properly supported so the cut stays open when you cut through.

  • Avoid cutting in the kickback zone, or upper quadrant of the blade.

  • Stand parallel to the cutting blade and not directly behind or facing the blade.

 

Necessary safety items include:

  • Respirators & dust masks
  • Hard hats & accessories
  • Hearing protection
  • Gloves
  • Hydration & heat stress prevention
  • Fire protection
  • Padlocks, cable locks, & lockout stations
  • Gas detection & confined space equipment
  • Eye protection
  • High-vis apparel
  • First aid
  • Gas cans & accessories
