TTS ABW8: Abrasive Wheel Training for Petrol Cut Off Saws and Angle Grinders.
This abrasive wheel course is accredited by the BAF (British Abrasives Federation) and is for operators of angle grinders & petrol cut off saws.
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.
This course covers all aspects of how to use a petrol cut off saw/floor saw safely including the selection of PPE, selection of abrasive wheels, operating the machine safely, refuelling, safe transportation etc.
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.
