The Regulations deal with the use of abrasive wheels. Speed of revolution, mounting of the abrasive wheels and guarding and rests for workplaces and flanges.

Schedule 14 deals with training and instruction and requires that any person required to use any work equipment that presents a significant risk to the user, must be trained in its use and that the training covers not only the use but also any hazards arising from the use and the precautions to be observed. It is not adequate to assume that because a person has a qualification in a trade, that they are competent with all tools related to that trade. This is especially true of power tools.
