1/7/10 – BAF and FEPA collaborate on Abrasives-users Safety Information
1 July, 2010
The British Abrasives Association (BAF) has produced a safety leaflet in conjunction with the Federation of European Producers of Abrasives (FEPA.)
The BAF has also created a selection of Specimen Safety Posters downloadable from their website entitled ‘Do’s and Don’ts’, ‘Use of Equipment’ and ‘Maximum operating speeds.’
The BAF provides an opportunity for those working tin the abrasives industry in the UK to take an active part on the generation of safety rules and regulations. They work closely with the British Standards Institution (BSI) and the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) who play a predominant role in ensuring UK manufacturers and working safely.
Other bodies that play a role in the UK abrasives and manufacturing industries are the European Committee Standardisation, whose safety requirements are adopted by all EU members and the International Standards Organisation (ISO) whose regulations are created in parallel with CEN’s regulations to make a fully accessible and applicable code of conduct.
The BAF works predominantly as a forum for manufacturers and users of Abrasives to discuss common issues and obstacles. To view their new safety information follow the link below.
