Our abrasive wheels training course is conducted on your site or ours for a maximum of 10 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.
