The ROLO Scheme (Register of Land-Based Operatives) was introduced to raise the standards of health and safety and reduce the risk of accidents throughout the industry. ROLO also encourages employers to keep a record of workers in the land-based industry who have achieved a recognized level of competence.
The Department of Trade & Industry made it a ‘duty of care’ that all trade bodies ensure that their members were adequately trained in health and safety and that all employers should show that personnel are properly trained. In July 2014 the United Kingdom Contractors Group (UKCG) officially recognised BALI’s ROLO (Register of Land-Based Operatives) Health, Safety and Environmental Awareness Course under its UKCG Health and Safety Training Standard.
The ROLO Health, Safety and Environmental Awareness Course is a prerequisite for anyone applying for a LISS/CSCS skills cards.
