Grass cutting equipment is widely used in the horticulture industries throughout Northern Ireland and it is important that staff receive training on their safe use and operation. This not only ensures that you meet your legal obligations for providing training but will also help reduce costs as operators are often more efficient while they work and the reduction in accidents will help reduce company costs as a result.
It is important that any operators of any plant and machinery receive suitable and sufficient training on the piece of equipment that they operate.
