Horticulture & Landscaping
The horticulture and landscaping industry often involves tasks that require the lifting, carrying, and handling of heavy or awkward objects, as well as the use of saws to trim and prune plants and trees. Without proper training, employees may be at risk of musculoskeletal injuries such as strains and sprains, or injuries caused by the improper use of saws. Proper manual handling and saw use training can help employees to understand how to safely perform these tasks, reducing the risk of accidents and injuries and improving overall safety on the job.
At ITS we offer a wide range of courses that could be useful to the industry but find that Manual handling and safe use of saws training are the most important for the horticulture and landscaping industry because it helps to prevent accidents and injuries on the job.
