about ROLO

The Register of Land-based Operatives Health, Safety and Environmental Awareness Course

ROLO (Register of Land-based Operatives) was developed by BALI to raise the standards of health and safety and reduce risks and accidents throughout the industry for anyone who works in the land-based sector. It also encourages employers to keep a record of workers in the land-based sector who have achieved a recognised level of competence.

The Department of Trade & Industry made it a ‘duty of care’ that all trade bodies ensure that their members were adequately trained in health and safety and that all employers should show that personnel are properly trained.

In July 2014 the United Kingdom Contractors Group (UKCG) officially recognised BALI’s ROLO Health, Safety and Environmental Awareness Course under its UKCG Health and Safety Training Standard, now known as Build UK. Their Standard Document can be found here.

The ROLO Health, Safety and Environmental Awareness Course is a pre-requisite for anyone applying for a LISS/CSCS SmartCard.

ROLO certificates are valid for 5 years. On application for your LISS/CSCS SmartCard, it is mandatory that your ROLO has been completed within the past 2 years.
