All equipment fitted with a grinding wheel, such as pedestal and hand grinders, floor saws and cut off saws fall into the category of Abrasive Wheels.
Abrasive wheels can be very dangerous if not fitted or operated in the correct manner. Legislation therefore dictates that no grinding wheels should be changed unless the person doing so has been suitably trained.
On successful completion of training, the candidate will be able to:
• Select and mount safely the correct type of disc or wheel for the task to be carried out.
• Fully understand their relevant plant equipment duties and responsibilities under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.
• The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974
• Construction Design and Management Regulations 2015
