Abrasive Wheels Safety Training is an online eLearning course, designed for employees who handle, operate, and maintain abrasive wheels in the workplace. Covering the dangers, legal responsibilities, and inspections of abrasive wheels, this course aims to leave the user confident in their day-to-day duties working towards compliance with the PUWER regulations.
Nearly half of all accidents involving abrasive wheels occur as a result of an unsafe system of work or operator error.
Abrasive wheels can be extremely dangerous if not used correctly, and this course should not be used instead of practical training, but rather to work alongside practical training to ensure the user understands their legal responsibilities.

There are a number of different types of abrasive wheels, each designed for a different purpose, such as cutting, shaping, removing sharp edges or cleaning materials.
In this first section, we look at the dangers, laws, legislation and responsibilities of both the employer and employee when it comes to the operation of abrasive wheels.
Type of Wheel
In the second section, we look at the British Standard System of marking and identifying wheels. This covers the display of supplier, dimensions, restrictions on use and operating speeds.
Choosing the Right Wheel
Choosing the correct abrasive wheel for the job is important as getting it wrong could cause damage to materials or poor quality work, and also has the potential to result in injury.
In the third section, we look at the six main characteristics of Abrasive Wheels which you need to know about when it comes to selecting the right type of abrasive wheel for the job.
Wheel Safety and Maintenance
Once you have chosen the correct wheel, it is important to know how to correctly set up and install the abrasive wheel. In the fourth and final section, we look at how to do this, from removing the wheel from its packaging to being ready to use it. This includes ring tests, wheel mounting, safety checks, abrasive wheel maintenance, handling and storage.
