Our courses comply with the HSE's requirement under Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER)
One day course aimed at the Fleet Manager, Line Manager, Access Negotiator or occasional off-road driver.
Accidents happen when a vehicle has been incorrectly
specified or an access route is unsuitable for the vehicles and equipment [See Case Study 2]. The aims of this course are
familiarisation, understanding and selection of light 4x4 vehicles.
vehicles have different dynamics to ordinary cars, so this course is
designed to increase understanding in these variations how a vehicle
handles, stops and drives both on and off road. Course content is similar
to the Borda 1 with theory of transmission types, suspension and tyres and
how they all alter the characteristics. There is practical experience of
off-road driving and assessing the ground conditions.
The outcome is a better understanding of this type of vehicle which is
useful when managing a work party, purchasing a contract or negotiating
