Pedestrian Mower Training

Pedestrian Mowers

Contour Training deliver pedestrian mower courses accredited by Lantra Awards.

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.
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.
