Abrasive Wheel Training Course – 1 Day Certification

Abrasive Wheel Training Course
1 Day Abrasive Wheel training course put together by the Master Locksmiths Association is perfect for those who use Angle/Bench grinders at work.

Certificate Valid for 5 Years

After attending this course

The MLA runs a course that follows (PUWER 98) guidance and will issue a certificate allowing you to demonstrate competency for a 5 year period from the date of the course (which will thereafter need to be renewed) which we believe is an easy way of showing compliance.

If you use abrasive wheels then the inspector may ask to see the evidence of competence during their inspection so please ensure you have the information available.

To help with this the MLA has paid for one of its experienced members to be trained up and able to deliver the required training to other members.

Why attend the course?

Under the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER), it is a legal requirement for those involved in the use of abrasive wheels to be properly trained.

These regulations have totally replaced the Abrasive Wheels Regulations 1970 for the safe handling, storing, mounting and use of grinding wheels.

In addition, new safety standards for abrasive wheels and grinding machines and new codes of practice for the safe use of these products have also been introduced.

This has widened the scope for training to include those manufacturing, specifying, selling, purchasing, supervising and using abrasives.

Most recently, the implementation of the General Product Safety Regulations (2005) has extended the requirements to cover abrasives used in the consumer market”
