Course Introduction

Abrasive wheels are wheels consisting of abrasive particles. They can be used for a wide variety of tasks, such as shaping, cutting, grinding, sanding and cleaning, and are used in many industries. But abrasive wheels are potentially dangerous tools.

If proper practices and control measures are not in place, they can cause serious injuries and ill-health. Estimates suggest that more than half of all accidents happen because the system of work is unsafe or users make mistakes.

This Abrasive Wheels Online Training course takes on average 30 minutes to complete.

Course Content

The Abrasive Wheels online training course is intended to provide those who work with abrasive wheels with general information on how to use them safely. It should not be used as a substitute for thorough, practical training.

The course describes the different hazards and risks associated with using abrasive wheels and how employees and employers can work together to implement and follow safety procedures and appropriate control measures.

These include ensuring that abrasive wheels are selected, handled, stored, examined and used properly, as well as complying with other requirements such as guarding and personal protective equipment (PPE). It also explains which type of incidents require reporting and why it is important to report them.
