Used correctly, ATVs, or quad bikes, are very versatile vehicles with a wide variety of uses. A range of attachments, including trailers, sprayers and spreaders, make them even more flexible and effective business tools.
The most experienced ATV riders can also find themselves in hazardous and potentially dangerous situations. Serious accidents can and do occur without proper training.
Training is a legal requirement. The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER) require employers to provide adequate training and to ensure ATVs are used only by employees who have received appropriate training in their safe use, including towed equipment and attachments. If you are self-employed, the Regulations still apply.
There are a series of courses covering the safe use of all ATVs and Quads. These range from basic handling on level ground to more extensive use carrying loads and the use of trailed equipment. The courses are modular and certification is offered on the section completed on each course.
Suitable for users in a wide range of industries and work environments, including:
Outdoor shows and events
Parks and gardens
