TTS ABW10: Abrasive Wheel Training for Precision Grinders and Bench/Pedestal Grinders.
This abrasive wheel course is accredited by the BAF (British Abrasives Federation) and is for operators of bench & pedestal grinders.
Grinding wheels are safe tools when they are used in accordance with some basic rules.
However if they are used incorrectly or not fitted carefully onto the machine, there is the possibility that the grinding wheel may burst.
There are far too many grinding accidents reported in various work places, these accidents range from minor to severe injuries; some resulting even in fatality.
The good news is that over 90% of these accidents are preventable if good safety precautions are adopted and this starts with thorough accredited training for all operators.
