New Safety Training Video: A Guide To Abrasive Wheel Safety

New Safety Training Video: A Guide To Abrasive Wheel Safety

The use of Abrasive Wheels has long been recognized as one of the most hazardous operations in construction, engineering and service industries.  Because abrasive wheels can be dangerous, most countries have introduced legislation to control the use of abrasive wheel machines.  In the UK, it’s a legal requirement for employers to provide training to workers who will use these machines.

A Guide to Abrasive Wheel Safety”, the latest DVD video release from Paragon Training (release date July 2010), addresses the essential aspects of abrasive wheel safety with tips drawn from several typical working situations and includes new and essential advice from the HSE relating to the control of dust from the use of abrasive wheels.  This new programme provides both a general introduction to safety in the use of abrasive wheels and also focuses on their use with hand-held angle grinders, petrol-driven cutting-off machines, and fixed bench grinders.

This new programme is delivered on DVD video disc and is provided with a screen menu giving the trainee access to ten essential but separate sections covering a wide range of abrasive wheel safety topics.  A ‘Play All’ function allows the trainee to view all ten sections sequentially with a total duration of approximately 32 minutes. Sections include:

  • Introduction to abrasive wheels
  • The need for proper (on the job) training
  • Characteristics of abrasive wheels
  • Abrasive wheel machines
  • Mounting abrasive wheels
  • Guarding of abrasive wheels
  • Safe operation of abrasive wheel machines
  • Control of dust
