ATV’s – Why is training necessary?

Used safely, ATVs, or quad bikes, are very versatile machines with many commercial and recreational uses. A whole range of attachments, including sprayers, spreaders and trailers, make them more flexible and an effective commercial tool.
Even experienced ATV riders can find themselves in hazardous and dangerous situations. Serious accidents can and do happen without proper training.

Training is a legal requirement. The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER) require employers to provide adequate training and to ensure that ATVs are used only by employees who have the appropriate training in using them safely, including towed equipment and attachments. If you are self-employed, the regulations still apply.
