This comprehensive one-day programme is designed to cover all of the legal requirements for the safe use and mounting of abrasive wheels.
It looks at the most up-to-date legislation, plus, wheel selection, wheel storage, wheel types and markings. This course also includes practical demonstrations on procedures to be followed when mounting abrasive wheels.
The provision and use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (Regulation 9) requires that any person using a piece of work equipment that presents a significant risk to the user must be trained and that the training covers not only the use but also any hazards arising from the use and the precautions to be observed. It is not adequate to assume that because a person has a qualification in a trade, that they are competent with any tools related to that trade. This is especially true of power tools. With this in mind, this training takes a generic approach to training with power tools and enable the person to be aware of the hazards and precautions.
