Different abrasive wheels have different properties for specific tasks. They also pose different risks and hazards in handling and use. 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 etc.
In 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.
