Welcome to the website where you can find answers for the CES test on the subject «Operation with Grinding Wheels». This site will help you as a marine specialist improve your knowledge with the help of open information, where you can find questions as well as answers for them. CES/CBT based on practical information and marine specialists experience.

CES tests developed for evaluating seaman basic knowledge by Seagull Company (rebranded as «OTG»), is an evaluating online-tool, used for revealing any professional preparation needed in specific fields of knowledge, defined by STCW.

CES tests have proven themselves as good tools for the selection and recruitment process, as well as advancing the level of knowledge of the current officers and crew. Ocean Technologies Group use various subjects for question creation, which includes:

  • Crowd and Crisis Management;
  • Integrated Navigation System (INS);
  • Ballast water management;
  • Handling and Stowage;
  • Vessel operation management and safety;
  • Marine engineering;
  • Maintenance and repair, etc.

«Operation with Grinding Wheels» subject includes theoretical and practical information about safety working with electrical equipment. Knowledge of this information directly shows employee’s competence who holds a relevant post on a vessel. Operating and maintaining grinding wheels on a vessel is crucial for ensuring safe and efficient operations. Firstly, it is important to inspect the grinding wheel before use to ensure it is free from damage, cracks or other defects. Secondly, appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) must be worn during operation, including eye protection, gloves and face shields. Thirdly, the grinding wheel should be used at the correct speed, pressure and angle to prevent overheating and premature wear. Finally, after use, the grinding wheel should be cleaned and stored properly to prevent corrosion and damage, and replaced when necessary to maintain safety and efficiency.

This page contains answers to Seagull CES (Crew Evaluation System) test about Operation with Grinding Wheels, and serve as a database of questions and answers, using which seafarer can prepare to exams for getting certificate of competence, or just to challenge yourself with knowledge in this theme.
