Abrasive Wheels Training

Abrasive wheels training provides participants with the knowledge, skills and attitude to enable operative use of the abrasive wheel safely.The provision and use of work equipment implicitly 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 to enable the person to be aware of the hazards and precautions.
