What is special about this course?
Abrasive wheels training is a legal requirement under the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER 98). It is imperative for those operating abrasive and grinding wheel equipment in the workplace, and provides learners with guidance on precautions for the prevention of accidents in the use of abrasive wheels, particularly injury resulting from either wheel breakage or contact with a running wheel.
No formal entry requirements. This course is for employees who may be required to use an abrasive wheel in the workplace.
