This course is aimed at anyone who uses abrasive wheels, or employs people who use abrasive wheels as part of their work. The course is approved by the International Institute of Risk and Safety Management (IIRSM) and the CPD Certification Service in the UK (Continuing Professional Development).
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.
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. For this reason, it’s important that you always select the right abrasive wheel for the job and use it with the right machinery.
This course covers the anatomy of an abrasive wheel, the dangers associated with their use, Storage and handling and much more.
On the 1st of July 2016 the law in Ireland regarding abrasive wheels changed. It is now necessary for an employer to authorise an employee in writing to use the abrasive wheel and that authorisation must be added to the Safety Statement.
