Summer Selection of courses

It is such lovely weather now for our Chainsaw Courses and as a part of your duty of care in the workplace, making sure your chainsaw users are properly trained and assessed as competent, is a requirement under  HSE  PUWER regulations.There are several different courses depending on your work situation.   City & Guilds NPTC with independent assessments for Professional Users in Forestry and Arboriculture and the Lantra Awards integrated training and assessment courses for people who are Occasional Users.  If you don’t know which you are, I probably do, so why not give me a ring.  Have a quick look at our website

For those of you wanting to started work in Arboriculture then your first step is Accessing a Tree Using Rope and Harness + Aerial Rescue.  

Don’t forget training on the use of Woodchippers, Powered Pole Pruners and Brushcutters.

Popular courses running at the momenta are the Lantra Awards Certificated Basic Tree  Survey and Inspection and the Professional Tree Inspection Course.

The risks and the penalties are high when operating machinery and vehicles in our land based industries.  Training will go a long way towards preventing accidents and avoiding paying large painful HSE fines if you are unlucky enough to have got things wrong.

The Lantra Awards  Profession 4×4 Off Road course is a good start

ATVs – both the sit-in and the sit astride varieties are a hot favourite of the HSE at the moment.  Do you have a competency certificate for all ATV users?

Rough Terrain Telescopic Handlers and Counterbalance Fork Lift Trucks are often used without adequate training.   People who are competent drivers of other machinery can work out how to use a fork lift truck but the issues of safe driving habits and working with elevated heavy or unstable loads are covered on our training courses.

And of course or First Aid Courses are there for all to enjoy – courses run every month

Keep Safe in the workplace and join us on an appropriate course.   Our website has full course details and prices.   All you have to do is ring or email us for dates.

Take care and we look forward to hearing from you.
