Abrasive Wheels are used in many areas and can be highly dangerous if used by untrained personnel. The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 requires that anyone involved in selecting, mounting, specifying or using abrasive wheels is trained, certified and deemed to be competent by their employer.

The aim of our course is to provide each delegate with the knowledge needed to safely identify, inspect, store, transport, and mount abrasive wheels in compliance with current legislation. The course also covers the methods of safe use of abrasive wheels on off hand bench grinders, portable cutting and grinding machines and the P. P. E that should be used.


Use of customer sites will be subject to an assessment. Delegate must be medically fit to perform the practical elements of this course and must sign a medical disclaimer to that effect.
