Abrasive Wheels

NPORS Accredited Course Duration 1 Day Course Description The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER) sets out the requirements for training in regard to equipment you provide for your employees. Part of these legal requirements state that equipment provided for use at work should be used only by the people who have received adequate information, instruction and training. This practical hands-on course is a must for anyone using Abrasive Wheels. The risk of breakage is inherent in every abrasive wheel. If the number of breakages, and therefore accidents, is to be kept low, the initial care exercised in the design, manufacture and testing by machine makers must be combined with the adoption of safety measures by the users. Accident statistics indicate that nearly half of all accidents involving abrasive wheels occur because of an unsafe system of work or operator error. With regards to abrasive wheels, PUWER 98 (The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998) requires, among other things, that all machinery is suitable for its intended use and is properly maintained. All employees, including those using, mounting and managing the operation of abrasive wheels, should be fully informed and properly trained in their safe use. The Abrasive wheels course is designed to instruct personnel who change/mount abrasive wheels and discs on portable equipment as part of their normal duties. Aim & Objectives of Course The course will provide operatives and employers with a general understanding of the legal requirements and relevant aspects of regulations and health & safety responsibilities. Candidates will be briefed on selecting the correct wheels and discs and will carry out a practical exercise using the equipment on various materials. Course contents There is no substitute for thorough practical training in all aspects of the mounting and use of abrasive wheels. Our training courses cover at least the following: (a) hazards and risks arising from the use of abrasive wheels and the precautions to be observed; (b) methods of marking abrasive wheels with their type, size and maximum operating speed; (c) how to store handle and transport abrasive wheels; (d) how to inspect and test abrasive wheels for damage; (e) the functions of all the components used with abrasive wheels such as flanges, blotters, bushes, nuts etc; (f) how to assemble abrasive wheels correctly to make sure they are properly balanced and fit to use; (g) the proper method of dressing an abrasive wheel (removing dulled abrasive or other material from the cutting surface and/or removing material to correct any uneven wear of the wheel); (h) the correct adjustment of the work rest on pedestal or bench grinding machines; (i) the use of suitable personal protective equipment, for example eye protection. It is recommended that a record of training in the safe mounting of abrasive wheels is kept, showing the trainee’s name and date of training.
