TTA Assessor/Trainer, Mike Sodano, Qualifies As Abrasive Wheels Instructor.

The Logistics Industry will only thrive and prosper if the people involved in the industry receive the best possible training and instruction.

That’s the firm belief of TTA. That’s why we only recruit the best possible instructors who are not only knowledgeable and highly experienced, but also passionate and enthusiastic about their role, and have the unique ability to be able to pass on that passion and enthusiasm to their candidates.

If you’re looking for a prime example of this knowledge and commitment, then you need look no further than Mike Sodano, Transport Training Academy’s Assessor/Instructor.

Mike joined the TTA training team in 2014 and brought with him a wealth of knowledge and experience after working for over 25 years in both the logistics training sectors and the Automotive Industry. Mike has already successfully converted his Fork Lift Instructor Certificate from another awarding body to ITSSAR, but TTA is delighted to announce that Mike is now also a fully-qualified Abrasive Wheels Instructor, and we’d like to take the opportunity to congratulate him on his achievement.

You may not, of course, have heard about Abrasive Wheels training, but for all operators, managers, and supervisors, who as part of their working duties select, mount, specify, or use abrasive wheels or cutting disks, this training is essential. The aim of Abrasive Wheels training is to enable employees to work safely, to provide an understanding of current legislation and promote awareness of the dangers and hazards of using an abrasive wheels, and to offer practical steps to reduce workplace accidents and encourage workers to adopt a culture that results in a safer workplace.

Under the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998, (PUWER) – regulations which replaced the Abrasive Wheels Regulations 1970 for the safe handling, storing, mounting and use of grinding wheels, it is a legal requirement for all staff who use abrasive wheels or cutting disks to receive abrasive wheels training in the safe use of the equipment and changing of abrasive wheels. What’s more, new safety standards for abrasive wheels and grinding machines and new codes of practice for the safe use of these products have also been introduced. These changes have widened the scope for training to include those manufacturing, specifying, selling, purchasing, supervising and using abrasives.
