TTS ABW5: Abrasive Wheel Training for Brick Saws, Chop Saws etc.
This abrasive wheel course is accredited by the BAF (British Abrasives Federation) and is for operators of chop saws, brick saws etc.
A chop saw can be as dangerous to use as any other saw.
This type of saw uses a resin bonded abrasive wheel or a TCT wheel which are designed to cut metal or other hard materials.
They can also be fitted with diamond tipped wheels for brick or block cutting on specialist machines such as the Norton Clipper Saw.
As with any power tool or sharp tools, you will need to follow safety precautions to protect yourself when you use it.
There are far too many chop saw accidents reported in various work places, these accidents range from minor to severe; 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.
