Abrasive Wheels.

Abrasive Wheels Course Overview

Delegates will gain an understanding of current legislation and be able to demonstrate the safe fitting and use of abrasive wheels in compliance with manufacturer’s instructions.

The  course involves both classroom and practical sessions. It will introduce employer and employee duties for the use of work equipment and explain relevant legislation, including responsibilities under the Health & Safety at Work Act.

Severe friction burns, crushed fingers and loss of eyesight are common injuries arising from accidents which occur when using abrasive wheels. The main hazards arise from the ejection of pieces of the wheel or work piece, contact with the wheel and trapping of fingers between the wheel and work rest.
