CPD - Abrasive Wheel Safety Training

This Abrasive Wheel Safety Training provides the knowledge you need to keep yourself and others safe during the handling, operation, and maintenance of Abrasive Wheels. It provides an in-depth look at the dangers they pose and how to spot them; the legal responsibilities of both employers and employees; how to store and regularly inspect the safety of any wheels you use; as well as considering the different kinds of wheels available and which ones are most suited to specific jobs.

If used incorrectly, abrasive wheels can be incredibly dangerous – in fact, over half of all recorded injuries are due to unsafe systems of work or errors made by the operator.

Whether a result of broken wheels, flying particles, or serious friction burns, accidents from Abrasive Wheels can be severe, resulting in hospitalisation and all too often, even blindness.

It does not replace practical training in how to use abrasive wheels. Instead, it should be used alongside practical training to increase workplace safety, awareness of legal responsibilities, and reduce the chance of an injury occurring at your workplace.


  • Learn about the different type of abrasive wheels, how they can be used in different ways and the different dangers they pose.
  • Understand how to select the right abrasive wheel for the job you are doing
  • Understand PUWER 1998 and the British Standard System of marking and identifying wheels
