    That would probably be the absolute last thing I would do. I've never heard anyone have anything other than nitpick problems after contacting OSHA. Pandoras box syndrome.

    Yes, as others have said PCD is not for steel. Use CBN and finish it. If it is not an interrupted cut, you should be able to finish it without grinding. We do a lot of hard turning with CBN or...
