Abrasive Wheels Online Course

This course is for anyone who uses abrasive wheels in the workplace or employs people who operate them as part of their job. There are a wide range of tools and processes that use abrasive wheels, so using them safely is of the utmost importance.

By taking this course you will understand the anatomy of an abrasive wheel, the dangers associated with their use, storage, handling and much more.
