COMPETENCY SAFETY NOTICE: The HSE in the UK stipulate the rules for employers to follow when choosing a training provider. No one training body is favoured above another so it is always an employer’s responsibility to choose the correct training for the equipment to be used. Please bear in mind that a trailer is classed as a separate item of equipment to the tractor towing it. Follow this link for a simple competency Q&A. Click Here
IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE: CPCS licence holders may need additional training to tow a trailer. The CPCS ‘competancy’ card (A33) Agricultural Tractor ticket may not cover the candidate to safely use a trailer, only to operate an “Agricultural Tractor”. Check with your training provider as to exactly what your course covered before operating any equipment. For more information on this subject please call our office for further details.
To comply with PUWER (Reg. 9 Training), you should: “ensure that self-propelled work equipment, including any attachments or towed equipment, is only driven by workers who have received appropriate training in the safe driving of such work equipment“.
