Nearly half of all accidents related to abrasive wheels occur due to unsafe working practices and operator errors. If you work with abrasive wheels you must follow strict health and safety practices to protect yourself and your colleagues from potential harm.

Our course is targeted at anyone who uses abrasive wheels or employs people who use abrasive wheels as part of their work.

There is a large variety of tools and processes that use abrasive wheels and making sure that these are used correctly and safely is of paramount importance. Applications differ from hand grinding to disc cutting. These can be used at every stage of a work process, for making cuts and scores in materials, or for polishing and finishing.

Individual wheels will also have varying properties and characteristics suitable for specific tasks. Different wheels also have different weaknesses and can possess different risks and hazards in handling and use. Due to these risks, you must always choose the correct abrasive wheel for the job and use it with the right machinery.

Subsequently, our e-learning course looks at the structure of an abrasive wheel, the dangers associated with using them, how to handle and much more…
