The Lantra Health and Safety and Risk Management in Winching course, aims to give you the practical knowledge that you need in order to understand health and safety requirements, best practice and risk assessment in relation to the vehicle mounted or hand operated winch, making sure that you are aware of the risks when using this equipment, so safe working practices can be implemented.
Who is it for?
If you are required to operate, or are going to operate a hand or mechanical winch on or off the road, then this course can help provide you with the safety knowledge required. Once the course has been completed individual assessment will be carried out and if you reach the required standard then you will receive the nationally recognised certificate in Health and Safety and Risk Management in Winching.
Our course can be held at any time of the year providing the ground conditions are suitable, and if you are a more experienced operator and complete the experienced operator declaration form then the course will last for just one day. If you are a novice, then this course will last for two days.
