The Lantra Safe Use of Mowers certificate forms part of your training and is mandatory for this course. To maintain quality assurance candidates will, on successful completion of their assessment, gain a Safe Use of Mowers certificate. Training is specific to the type of cutting mechanism used and focuses on safe operation, including;

1. Health & Safety
2. Pre-use checks
3. Basic Maintenance
4. Identification of controls and instruments
5. Operating the machine

Important notice for employers: Although a person who is trained and achieves a qualification in the use of an item of machinery/equipment may train another operative back in the workplace, their qualification does not authorise them to assess an operative's competence, nor grant them any qualification.
