What is Rolo?

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 Land based Operatives) is open to anyone who works in the Land based Industry. This includes labour only, self-employed and employees of companies. On completion of a One day Land based Health & Safety Course, a card (including photograph) would be issued to the applicant, similar to a credit card. This is issued to an individual and will be valid for 5 years. Any other relevant training, i.e. NPTC Pesticide, chain saw, ride on mowers etc would also be acknowledged on the card.

The aims of the scheme are:

  • Provide a means of identification
  • Keeping a record of workers in the landbased industry who have achieved a recognized level of competence
  • Raise the standards of Health and Safety to reduce the risks and accidents throughout the industry



How can Training Smart help?

Training Smart Ltd offer open courses monthly and can also run the course at a clients premises.

On successful completion of a one day land based Health and Safety course a certificate can be issued to the applicant. 

This certificate can be used along with a CSCS touch screen test pass to apply for an unskilled Labourers card as part of the LISS CSCS scheme run by BALI and CSCS.
