Winter Gritting Training 


Our Winter Gritting and Snow Clearance operator training courses are all LANTRA accredited and delivered by our qualified instructors.  


Every employer has a duty of care to their employees - a legal and moral obligation to ensure the safety and well-being of all staff. It is illegal to ask an employee to carry out a task for which they have received no training, resulting in potential prosecution under current health and safety guidelines.
