GTC Health and Safety Wallchart

hs-wallchart

The GTC Work Equipment – Record of Training and Competence wallchart is now very much a feature in all Greenkeeping Maintenance Facilities showing instant references to staff competencies in relation to machinery/equipment.  This has been kindly sponsored by Ransomes Jacobsen – Cutting Edge Training.

The purpose of the wallchart is to assist with the important task of accurately recording staff training and competence.  The need for this cannot be overstated.

There may be a time when the golf club will be required to prove that a person has been adequately trained and is competent to carry out their duties in a safe manner.  Detailed individual records should be kept of all training and assessment activities and this wallchart compliments those training records by showing, at a glance, the equipment and machines each member of the greenkeeping team are competent to use.

The wallchart is available to purchase via the GTC shop at £15.

GTC Chairman Alistair Booth said: “The aim of the newly-published guidance notes has been to give anyone at a golf club, or associated with a golf club, an overview of their roles and responsibilities towards health and safety and best practice. They have been moved to a web-based platform, making them easier for everyone to access.

 “With increasingly-complex machinery and other tools being used on golf courses, these guidelines are hugely important in ensuring all involved in the management of a golf club understand their specific responsibility in keeping staff and golfers safe. As such, if these new guidelines are followed correctly, they could save lives or at least reduce the risk of serious incidents taking place around the golf course environment.”

The web-based platform is packed full of information and guidance on all aspects of golf course management and maintenance, covering areas such as: roles and responsibilities; legislation; greenkeeping safety; events; clubhouse management; establishing a health and safety management system.
