Abrasive Wheels Package inc.COSHH

An abrasive wheel is anything which rotates using a motor specifically to grind or cut a material. The most common are bench grinders, handheld grinders and sthil saws.

What will I study?

The abrasive wheels' training assesses candidates on their competence in using abrasive wheels. This is not a practical course and there is no substitute for thorough on-site training on specific machinery.

The training assesses ability to recognise the correct discs for the correct materials and work, identifying defects in the cutting disc, selecting the right type of machinery for the work to be carried out, correctly fitting the disc to specific machinery and the regulations which cover these items

How will I be assessed?

The course lasts approximately 9.5 hours. You will be assessed practically on the safe selection of blades and safe fitting of the discs to specific machinery and then you will also sit an end exam which must be passed to achieve the certificate of competence
