Abrasive Wheels Training
The Safety in Industry Act, Schedule No. 30 (Abrasive Wheels) 1982 places an obligation on all employers where Abrasive Wheels are in use, to ensure that only trained, competent and appointed personnel mount the appropriate wheels on the machines.
This legislation has come about because of the number of serious injuries and fatalities caused by the use of machines by untrained personnel. Accidents also occur as a result of wheels being mounting by untrained personnel.
