BAF ACREDITIED - ABRASIVE WHEELS TRAINING

Bonded Abrasive Safety Training (Hand Held & Bench):

The improper use, handling and storage of abrasive products can lead to serious and sometimes fatal accidents. This has been recognised in the UK and is now covered by legislation. This legislation makes it a legal requirement that operators, and those involved in the use of Abrasive Wheels are properly trained.

We provide a tailored training programme, accredited by the BAF (British Abrasives Federation), which will ensure that employers meet their legal obligations and equip their employees with the necessary skills and knowledge to safely use Abrasives.

We will ensure that all participants have fully understood each section of the course and that they can fully meet all the requirements of the Regulations, Standards and Codes of Practice relevant to the safe use of Abrasives.

Upon successfully completing the training each participant is issued with a BAF certificate. Each certificate lists the participant’s name and unique reference number. The participants name and employer is also entered and listed on the BAF National Register.
