About the course

This course is designed to raise awareness of the key points in the safe handling and use of abrasive wheels and to protect you and those around you.

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. For this reason, it’s important that you always select the right abrasive wheel for the job and use it with the right machinery.

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.
