½ Day Abrasive Wheels Training Course

Abrasive wheels are essential equipment in many industries and the range of abrasive wheels now available makes them even more flexible and effective workshop tools. However inexperience or carelessness in the use of abrasive wheels can be very dangerous, and serious accidents can and do occur without proper training.

The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 require that those using abrasive wheels (including petrol driven and electrical powered disc cutters and angle grinders) have suitable Abrasive Wheels training in the specific hazards associated with this machinery.

We at Shield Health & Safety offer a course that strictly follows the recommendations of British Abrasives Federation and leading abrasives manufacturers and suppliers. Based in Norwich, Norfolk we assist in complying regulations and cater different requirements in training.
