Invest in training to support safe and productive agriculture

  • Lantra will be showcasing the breadth of training options for safe and productive working in agriculture at the upcoming leading industry machinery and equipment show, LAMMA 2024, on Wednesday 17 January and Thursday 18 January

Tractors, ATVs, 4x4s and telehandlers are essential pieces of heavy machinery for many agricultural businesses, therefore operating them safely and efficiently is vital. Lantra training courses are suitable for both new and experienced drivers and operators, providing the knowledge and skills that are needed for effective operation on the farm.

Lantra has experienced instructors who deliver a range of training courses, between 1-5 days in length, to ensure farm machinery is used safely and with confidence. Farmers, contractors and students are being encouraged to visit the Lantra stand (142) in hall 12, at the NEC, Birmingham to find out more.

Lantra’s CEO, Marcus Potter, will also be joining an expert panel at LAMMA to discuss the role of training in changing the culture of farm safety. He said: ”Farming can be made safer with training.

Lantra is working closely with the industry to create a strong health and safety culture where there is a high level of awareness of the hazards, risks and precautions that exist in the farm environment.

Health and Safety on Farms, helps learners understand the risks of working in agricultural environments and measures to help control those risks. Over 4000 people have completed this training to date, and we are keen that the numbers keep growing”.

In addition to showcasing training courses, the Lantra careers team will also be on the stand at LAMMA to highlight the wide variety of careers in agriculture and provide a preview of an apprenticeship toolkit for employers which is coming soon.
