Lantra Awards Technical Award in Sit-In ATVs – Skid Steer Tracked or Wheeled

Skid steers are a very versatile vehicle, however without proper training operators could find themselves in a dangerous situation and increase the likelihood of an accident.

Skid steers whether multi wheeled or tracked are an extremely beneficial utility vehicle, capable of carrying passengers and equipment over diverse terrain.

Often used in forestry, utility companies, moorland management and construction to gain access to areas unsuitable for larger 4×4 vehicles, they range from light weight to semi amphibious vehicles that provide access to soft, wet ground causing very little surface damage.

By completing this course, you will be meeting requirements under Health and Safety and in particular the PUWER regulations.
