Register of Land-based Operations (ROLO) is recognised by BuildUK as one of the leading Health, Safety and Environmental Awareness Courses in the UK, designed exclusively for the Land-based industries by landscaping professionals

ROLO was developed and is owned by the British Association of Landscape Industries (BALI) to raise the standard of health and safety and reduce the risk accidents in the workplace. It also encourages employers to keep a record of workers in the Lland-based sector who have achieved a recognised level of competence.
