Pedestrian Mower Training

Lantra Approved

Our Pedestrian Mowers Course

Specialist Pedestrian Mower Training

Contour Training deliver pedestrian mower courses accredited by Lantra Awards and NPORS.

There are a wide range of mowers in use today. If used correctly and maintained properly they should pose very little risk to the operator or to people around the machine. But accidents do happen, often for very simple reasons.

Course Objectives:

  • Identify components of mowing machines
  • Carry out daily/basic routine maintenance
  • Carry out pre-start checks
  • Operate the mowing machine safely

Industry Experience

Contour Training’s industry experience includes working with both public and private sector, construction and utility sectors, government organisations, local authorities, MOD and conservation groups. We have some of the most experienced Lantra Awards and NPORS trainers in the UK, many of whom are also highly experienced with all types of all-terrain vehicles.

Why Learn?

Anyone who needs to use a pedestrian mower at work. The aim of a pedestrian mower course is to provide operators, both new and experienced, with an insight into safety awareness and risk assessment in order to reduce the likelihood of an accident occurring.

Operator training is a legal requirement under PUWER regulations.

Awarding Bodies

The course is usually run as a Lantra ITA, and those reaching the required standard will receive a Lantra Certificate of Competence. Alternatively, the course can be delivered to NPORS accreditation standard.
