Our own in-house assessment programme, primarily aimed at employers seeking to obtain a qualification for their own employees to meet Health & Safety at Work Act 1974 requirements. Our Assessor will visit you on-site using your machine and take you through a series of manoeuvres to prove competence. You will then be issued with a 4 year competence card.
Categories of plant include dumpers, roller, excavators, telehandler, forklift, lorry loader, tractor, MEWP, side-loader, loading shovel.
Under current UK regulations, any person required to carry out any work on the Highway, footways or their curtilage must be trained and assessed as competent and hold a Vocational Qualification in the work they will undertake.
The minimum level of qualification is the SQA New Roads & Street Works certificate, to either supervisor or operative level. Obtaining it will involve an element of formal training followed by practical exercises and on-site assessment.
