It is one of the oldest tools on Earth – from the huge machine on a factory field to the hand-held portable – the abrasive wheel’s greatest strength is and always has been its many uses. But do not be fooled as, used wrong way, it can also be very dangerous. This video sets out how to use both portable and bench-mounted abrasive wheels correctly and safely – above all, at sea.
It shows you how to choose, test, mount and use typical wheels and also addresses the international legislation governing their use. The mounting of any abrasive wheel is a task for trained and authorized personnel only. At sea, the majority of wheels are to be fitted on portable machines that are used by the crew members for the routing maintenance.

Note that this video is to supplement an excellent training booklet also released by Videotel and we do recommend to use both of these training resources as a set in order to get the maximum benefit and get better understanding of the dangers commonly associated with the use of the abrasive wheels on board, and how to do your work safely and avoid any issues. Note that the safety remains the priority art all times.
