Abrasive Wheels Training

Abrasive wheels play a crucial role across various industries, furnishing workshops with versatile and highly efficient tools. The broad spectrum of abrasive wheels available today significantly amplifies their adaptability and effectiveness. Nevertheless, it is imperative to acknowledge that inexperienced or careless handling of abrasive wheels can pose substantial risks, resulting in serious accidents. Without proper training, such incidents are not only possible but also likely.

In order to adhere to the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998, individuals operating abrasive wheels, including disc cutters and angle grinders powered by petrol or electricity, must undergo appropriate training addressing the specific hazards associated with this machinery.
