Abrasive Wheels

Price:  £20 + VAT

The Abrasive Wheels Online Training Course is designed to promote safe working practices and minimise errors in the use of abrasive wheels. There are a wide range of tools and processes that use abrasive wheels and ensuring these are used correctly and safely is of paramount importance. Applications range from hand grinding to disc cutting. They can be used at all stages of a work process, for making preliminary cuts and scores in materials, or for fine polishing and finishing. Different wheels will have different properties and characteristics suitable for particular tasks. They also have different weaknesses and can pose different risks and hazards in handling and use. For this reason, it is important that you always select the correct abrasive wheel for the job and use it with the right machinery.

This course covers the anatomy of an abrasive wheel, the dangers associated with their use, storage and handling and much more.
On successful completion of the course you will obtain a course certificate. Your certificate will be available to download as soon as you have passed your course.
The Abrasive Wheels course is accredited by the CPD Certification Service and approved by The International Institute of Risk & Safety Management IIRSM.  IIRSM & CPD approved courses are distributed under licence.
