TTS ABW6: Abrasive Wheel Training for Hand Held Grinders, Angle Grinders and Bench/Pedestal Grinders.
This abrasive wheel course is accredited by the BAF (British Abrasives Federation) and is for operators of angle grinders, other hand held grinders & bench/pedestal grinders.
An angle grinder features a heavy duty abrasive cutting or grinding disc that is powerful enough to cut or grind through steel, concrete and other hard materials.
Powered by electricity, compressed air or a battery powered motor, these hard-wearing tools demand that every safety precaution is followed to help prevent injury.
Bench & Pedestal grinders use vitrified wheels for grinding a variety of materials.
Vitrified wheels are brittle due to the way that they are manufactured which means if they are not used correctly they are liable to break.
There are far too many abrasive wheel 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.
