Course Outlinesoiltesting

This two day WAMITAB accredited course is designed for operators/drivers working in the landspreading sector. The overall purpose of the training is to provide candidates with the skills and knowledge to safely spread waste to land within legislative requirements and with due regard for health and safety and environmental concerns. The course aims to ensure that all operators spreading to land are aware of the risks associated with spreading practices and understand the appropriate steps that can be taken to eliminate and minimise risks.

Candidates will obtain an understanding of the regulatory requirements governing their industry and governing their spreading activities. This will included an understanding of the rules to which they must comply, the environmental risks associated with their activities and how to mitigate against these and an awareness of the health and safety risks associated with their work both to them personally and the general public.
