Horticulture Training Courses

Based in the heart of rural Cheshire, we pride ourselves on supporting the farming and agriculture community. Our selection of horticulture courses are designed to develop the skills of the workers in this vital industry and to help reduce the risks to their health and safety.

Providing Adequate Health And Safety Through Horticulture Courses

The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 incorporates a variety of legislative acts aimed at protecting those working in the horticulture, agriculture, and farming industries. 

All workers have a right to return home safely and, with farming having one of the highest fatality rates of all industries, it is vital that agriculture workers are adequately trained. 

Given the physical nature of these roles, there is also a requirement to make sure that workers are safe from injury due to repetitive or strenuous labour.
