Cut-Off Saws (COS) Training
Cut-Off Saws (COS) are widely used across the construction industry for cutting stone and steel.


STIHL GB, have worked with SKANSKA  to develop a new training programme to promote the safe use of cut off saws across the construction industry.
Until now, training for the use of cut-off saws has largely been limited to holding an Abrasive Wheels Certificate as proof of training. This is limited to selecting the correct abrasive wheel for the material being cut and correctly fitting it to the machine.
STIHL Cut-Off Saw (COS) Training is the complete knowledge of how to check, set up and operate the machine.
