The Register of Landbased Operatives (ROLO) Health & Safety and Environmental awareness course has been designed to increase the profile of health and safety and thereby reduce the number of accidents causing harm to operatives within the land-based sector. It also takes into account the need to align to professional standards such as the competency framework demanded by National Highways Sector Scheme 18 (NHSS18) for the Environment and Landscape including ecology.

The aims of the scheme are to:

Provide a means of identification
Keep a record of workers in the landbased industry who have achieved a recognised level of competence
Raise the standards of health and safety to reduce the risks and accidents throughout the industry
Encourage employers to use only ROLO card holders who have accredited health and safety training.
Provide a recognised route for health and safety training in the National Highways Sector Scheme 18 (NHSS) accreditation.
Provide an industry specific accredited route to to Landbased Industry Skills Scheme/Construction Skills Certification Scheme (LISS/CSCS).
Move towards an increasingly qualified workforce, thus improving customer satisfaction and the industry\'s image.

Who should attend
The ROLO Scheme (Registration of Landbased Operatives) is open to anyone who works in the landbased industry. This includes labour only, self-employed and employees of companies. The scheme is intended to apply to those working in:

Landscaping (including arboriculture, pesticides and amenity)
Ecology and environment
The course lasts for one day.

There is a 35 minute multiple choice examination at the end of the course. Delegates must pass the exam in order to achieve the ROLO qualification.

The scheme is administered by the British Assocition of Landscaping Industies (BALI). Certificates for successful candidates will be produced by BALI.

Delegates who successfully pass the ROLO course and a separate Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) touch screen test can apply for the new Landbased Industry Skills Scheme/Construction Skills Certification Scheme (LISS/CSCS) card.

The LISS/CSCS card is a mandatory requirement for anyone working on NHSS18 projects.

The fees below are based on delegates attending one of our open courses.

If you have four or more people requiring training, you might find it more cost effective for us to deliver the training in-house.

The course costs £175 + VAT per delegate and payment is required when booking the course.

The fees cover the cost of the training, all course materials, refreshments throughout the day, a light lunch, examination fees and a certificate.
