Abrasive Wheels Training
Our abrasive wheels training course is conducted on your site or ours for a maximum of 12 trainees and lasts ½ a day (up to 3 hours).
This abrasive wheel training course has been designed and structured to comply with the requirements of the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER 98).
It will leave your delegates with the knowledge they need to go on and become competent operatives in the use of abrasive wheels.
This training course can be conducted on any site that has suitable facilities e.g. table & chairs, power and somewhere to project on to. Our instructor will arrive at your site with a variety of different types of abrasive wheels and a small abrasive wheel machine for the practical element. This course is suitable for all types of abrasive wheels as this is a theoretical course rather than a practical one.
Extract from PUWER 98:
In relation to Abrasive Wheels PUWER 98 requires, among other things, that all machinery is suitable for its intended use and is properly maintained, and that employees including those using, mounting and managing the use of Abrasive Wheels, are fully informed and properly trained in their safe use.

a beneficial course, more than just a tick in the box as it brought up a few things we weren’t aware of and weren’t currently checking 100%. Delivered by an instructor who knew his subject, delivered his content without waffle and not ‘death by power point’. Good practical/interactive demos to make the students think rather than just ‘stare’

A huge thank you to Chris for the great job he did on the abrasive wheels course on Thursday! I was really impressed with the amount of detail he covered in such a short space of time and he really made it interesting. I was pleased that he covered details regarding the law and the HSE which is important for everyone in the company to know. The practical application at the end was excellent as he really tested everyone on their knowledge. It’s always important to ensure people not just listen to the details but actually understand why they are doing things a certain way so that part of the course was so crucial.
Chris also asked me to try my hand at the practical application which was extremely useful, if a little nerve wracking! It gave me a much better understanding of the importance of how the machines work and how best to keep everyone safe.
