There are a wide range of tools and processes that use Abrasive Wheels and ensuring these are used correctly and safely is of paramount importance. Applications range from hand grinding to disc cutting. They can be used at all stages of a work process and different wheels will have different properties and characteristics suitable for particular tasks. They also have different weaknesses and can pose different risks and hazards in handling and use. For this reason, it’s important that you always select the right abrasive wheel for the job and use it with the right machinery. This course covers the safe speeds, wheel markings and checking, testing and inspecting abrasive wheels.
This course is aimed at anyone who uses abrasive wheels or employs people who use abrasive wheels as part of their work.
One of the key points of this course is intended to teach the anatomy of an abrasive wheel, the dangers associated with their use, storage and handling and much more. Online training is flexible, efficient and cost-effective, so candidates can progress through the modules at their own pace, in their own time, making it easy to fit the training around their work and personal life.
Course Cost: £20 per licence
Our Workplace Health and Safety and Working Safely courses are great induction courses in relation to health and safety as they cover a wide range of topics in more detail and have been designed to complement this course. Anyone who is required to lift, lower, push, pull or carry as part of their normal work our Manual Handling course covers this more thoroughly and anyone who handles chemicals, our more detailed COSHH course would be a great next step.
