HSA Safety Alert: Angle Grinders

Safety Alert Bosch Grinders GWS20 & GWS22 Manufactured June-August 2016.

The Health and Safety Authority has been made aware of a safety-related product recall by Bosch Power Tools for angle grinders.

The recall affects the following angle grinders (Products): series GWS 20, and GWS 22 from the production period June through to August 2016. The company has ascertained that, due to a faulty component, the cutting or grinding disc together with the fastening fixture (spindle) could become detached during operation on a number of angle grinders. This could lead to serious injury to operators or others. Bosch has decided to recall all potentially affected products with immediate effect.
