Abrasive Wheels

On the 1st of July 2016, the law in Ireland regarding abrasive wheels changed.

It is now necessary for an employer to authorise an employee in writing to use the abrasive wheel and that authorisation must be added to the Safety Statement. There are a wide range of tools and processes that use abrasive wheels, from hand grinding to disc cutting and ensuring these are used correctly and safely is of paramount importance. Different wheels will have different properties and characteristics suitable for particular tasks. They also have different weaknesses and can pose different risks and hazards in handling and use.

This course is aimed at anyone who uses abrasive wheels, or who employs people who use abrasive wheels as part of their work. It also provides an understanding of abrasive wheels instructing delegates in all aspects of the correct mounting, setting and use of abrasive wheels.

What People Say

A small selection of kind words.
Started working with Fran four years ago and now she looks after all of our health and safety paperwork and training. She is approachable, down to earth, on top of everything and always on the phone when we need her. John Brophy JNL SCAFFOLDING
Couldn’t recommend Frances highly enough. Very professional service with serious attention to detail. She knows what we need before we do! She looks after all our paperwork, records, training, certification etc. She put a system in place for us and she monitors it and keeps everything and everyone in line! Keith Murphy AVALON CONVEYOR COMPONENTS
Professional service that hasn’t cost me the earth! I call on Fran for updates or method statements or if I am asked for something specific for health and safety. She is always so helpful and practical; she works out solutions on site and puts the paperwork together for me. Even though I only call on her when I need her, she actually feels like one of the lads. Martin Bennett COOLRAIN CONCRETE
I was starting from scratch when I contacted Fran for a Health and Safety Statement. I thought it would be just a one-off need but as I have gotten different jobs, I have needed method statements, or extra training and I have always gone back to Fran. I would build all day long but ask me to do paperwork and I would run a mile! Fran makes it all so easy, there is no fuss, just an easy going get the job done attitude. Mark Fortune KEY CONSTRUCTION
