Registration of Land Based Operatives (ROLO)

Health, Safety and Environmental Awareness Course

ROLO Health, Safety and Environmental Awareness Course

The ROLO scheme (Registration of Land Based Operatives) is available to anyone who works in the land based industries or sectors, this involves those who are self employed, employees of companies or labour only.

A ‘duty of care’ has been put in place that all trade bodies must ensure that people are trained in Health and Safety and that employers show that their employees have been properly trained.

On completing the ROLO health and safety awareness course an ID card can be issued and is valid for five years. You can also put other relevant training courses on the ID card such as pesticides, chainsaw, ride on mowers.

At the end of the day a multiple choice exam is taken where you need to achieve 75% to achieve ROLO accreditation.
