If your company uses 4×4 or off-road vehicles in the workplace all users of such vehicles must be trained how to use them safely. The demand for employees to be trained & certificated, complying with Health & Safety regulations, requires specialist off-road instruction.
Orangeworks specialises in such professional training qualifications for anyone using four-wheel drive vehicles in the workplace.
Training is necessary for users in a wide range of industries and work environments, including:
• Construction sites
• Golf clubs
• Industrial sites
• Leisure complexes
• Local authorities
• Outdoor shows and events
Used correctly, off-road vehicles, or 4×4’s, are very versatile vehicles with a wide variety of uses. Their use with trailers make them even more flexible and effective tools for both business and recreation.
Unfortunately, even the most experienced off-road drivers can find themselves in hazardous and potentially dangerous situations. With our weather changing, once in a lifetime weather now seems to be every other year. You need to respond and evolve. You need everyone on the same page, and to pull in the same direction. You know that when you don’t plan, it at best impacts your operational ability, or – worst of all – you are not operational. Serious accidents can and do occur without proper training.
You will be expected to complete theoretical and practical tests whilst being assessed.
What you will need:
• Driving licence
• Relevant outdoor clothing & footwear
• Your 4×4 vehicle normally used for work, together with its handbook or manual showing it’s 4wd operating system.
