Who needs an Abrasive Wheels Course?

If you work with or employ people to work with abrasive wheels, then this abrasive wheels online training course is vital. Not only will it help you to keep safe at work, it will also ensure that you can remain compliant with the HSE regulations.

There are several definitions or classifications for abrasive wheels.

Some main ones are:

  • wheels, cylinders, discs, or cones which consists of abrasive particles held together by various bonds
  • a mounted wheel or disc which have separate segments of abrasive material
  • an abrasive wheel can also have diamond abrasive impregnated into the surface, which is used for grinding or cutting 

Because of the dangers associated with abrasive wheels, it is important that anyone working with them are properly trained. Employers have a responsibility to provide workers with proper training. The regulations state “No person shall use abrasive wheels unless trained and competent for the classification”. Being trained and competent means understanding the approved literature.
