Foreseeing All Your Safety Needs

ATV Training

ATV is designed to be a safe vehicle when used as intended. The key to safe operation is YOUR knowledge of the vehicle; recognizing and accepting it as a motorized vehicle; respecting its capabilities and its limitations; varying operating conditions; knowledge of local laws; good judgement and courtesy. Recognizing your own capabilities and limitations is also a very important factor for the safe operation of a snowmobile.

Things to consider

  • Anyone operating an ATV must have a valid drivers license
  • All employees must be trained on how to operate an ATV
  • The ONLY way for your employees to achieve OHS compliance is by taking both theory and practical training
