The ROLO Scheme (Register of Land-Based Operatives) was introduced to raise the standards of Health and Safety and reduce the risks and accidents throughout the industry for anyone who works in the Landbased Sectors, it also encourages employers to keep a record of workers in the landbased industry who have achieved a recognized level of competence.
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.
In July 2014 The United Kingdom Contractors Group (UKCG) officially recognised BALI’s ROLO (Register of Land-Based Operatives) Health, Safety and Environmental Awareness Course under its UKCG Health and Safety Training Standard.
Suitable for those seeking to register under the R.O.L.O (Register of Landscape Operatives) scheme.
Satisfactory completion of a one day approved health and safety awareness course is a mandatory requirement of the R.O.L.O scheme.
The ROLO Health, Safety and Environmental Awareness Course is a pre-requisite for anyone applying for a LISS/CSCS skills card.
