Toolbox Talks: Plant

In order to drive any category of plant you must first be trained by one of WRG’s Instructors who holds the Driver Authorisation (DA) Instructor status. Volunteers who wish to operate defined categories of plant (and to instruct others) apply to the WRG Board for authorisation.  This authority, if granted, simply shows that they have been duly training, assessed and authorised to use the named plant and / or vehicles specified.
