Registration of Landbased Operatives

The Department of Trade & Industry made it a ‘duty of care’ that all trade bodies ensure that their members were adequately trained in Health & Safety and that all employers should show that personnel are properly trained.

The ROLO Scheme (Registration of Landbased Operatives) is open to anyone who works in the Land based Industry and is a requirement if you need to apply for a LISS/CSCS card. On completion of this one day landbased Health & Safety Course, a certificate would be issued to the applicant and will be valid for 2 years. OnSite Training runs regular courses at our office in Wellingborough or we can deliver a course for you at your premises.

The planned ROLO scheme training courses for 2020 are:


  • Tuesday 13th October

  • Tuesday 17th November

  • Tuesday 8th December
