Abrasive Wheels


This course is for anyone who will use, adjust, change or mount abrasive wheels. This includes all hand held grinders and petrol saws, as well as bench mounted grinders and floor saws.

Often overlooked by employers—this is one of the most popular courses we offer. Delegates report that they are immediately more comfortable using the equipment and make better choices when doing so.

Whether you're a complete beginner or an experienced operator looking to refresh your skills, you'll cover the skills and knowledge needed to operate the machinery in a safe and effective manner at all times.

Course Information

It's important that the training is enjoyable, relevant and useful. That's why all of our courses are tailored to your needs. The following information is for general guidance, and we are happy to discuss your content, duration, location, certification and cost requirements.


The course is delivered through a combination of classroom-based tutorials and practical exercises. You will be assessed through theory and practical tests. All of our trainers are accredited.

4safety can train/assess up to three experienced candidates in one day for most equipment/machine courses. If they are not experienced then this will take longer depending on the complexity of the machine, the number of candidates and their aptitude for operating the equipment. The non-equipment based courses can normally accommodate 6 candidates depending on the course and level of experience.

As with all of our courses, we ask if the candidates can read and understand English. We can provide a translator for the entire course or just for the theory if necessary, but there is an extra charge and we need to know this at the booking stage.


Upon successfully completing the course you will be awarded a 4safety certificate. Nationally accredited certification for NPORS is available for an additional fee per person.
