What is ROLO?
The Department of Trade & Industry made it a ‘duty of care’ that all trade bodies ensure that their members were adequately trained in Health & Safety and that all employers should show that personnel are properly trained.
The ROLO Scheme (Registration of Land based Operatives) is open to anyone who works in the Land based Industry. This includes labour only, self-employed and employees of companies. On completion of a One day Land based Health & Safety Course, a card (including photograph) would be issued to the applicant, similar to a credit card. This is issued to an individual and will be valid for 5 years. Any other relevant training, i.e. NPTC Pesticide, chain saw, ride on mowers etc would also be acknowledged on the card.
The course is a pre-requisite for anyone applying for a LISS/CSCS skills card.
The aims of the scheme are:
Provide a means of identification
Keeping a record of workers in the landbased industry who have achieved a recognized level of competence
Raise the standards of Health and Safety to reduce the risks and accidents throughout the industry
Encourage employers to use only ROLO card holders who have accredited Health and Safety Training.
If you would be interested to book a place for this course, please ring: 01872 262261, or email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
£110.00 per delegate, plus ROLO card fees & VAT. Costs include certification.
