Abrasive Wheels


Lancaster Training Services Ltd offers a one-day abrasive (grinding) wheel course taking place at our Training Centre in Heysham.

Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER 98)

In relation to abrasive wheels, PUWER 98 requires, among other things, that all machinery is suitable for its intended use and is properly maintained. It also requires employees, including those using, mounting and managing the operation of abrasive wheels, are fully informed and properly trained in their safe use. PUWER 98 demands that not only those that change or mount abrasive wheels, but also those that use, operate, manage and supervise the use of abrasive wheels must be trained as well.
