The Course

Abrasive wheels are essential equipment in many industries, and the range of abrasive wheels now available makes them even more flexible and effective workshop tools. However inexperience or carelessness in the use of abrasive wheels can be very dangerous, and serious accidents can and do occur without proper training. Training is a legal requirement.

The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER) require employers to provide adequate training and to ensure that abrasive wheels are operated only by employees who have received appropriate training in their safe use. If you are self-employed, the regulations still apply.

As well as being held at Bishop Burton College this course can be delivered on your own site, using your own equipment ensuring your employees are trained in the environment they are most familiar with and at a time that best suits you.
