• Off-Highway Vehicle Operator – Alberta


Off-Highway Vehicle Operator

At the end of this course the end-user should be familiar with Utility Task Vehicles (UTV’s), and All-Terrain Vehicles (ATV’s), their basic structural components, basic function, potential hazards while operating, and how to control those hazards. Due to the large number of attachments available for off-highway vehicles, this course only covers the basics of attachment use and encourages the end-user to take additional training specific to the attachment being used.

End-users should not assume this material alone constitutes complete training. It is expected that a workplace will apply this information as they create their own company specific Powered Mobile Equipment Operator program as part of their company’s larger Health & Safety Management System.

Due to the different policies and procedures and equipment utilized on different work sites certain statements in this program may not apply.
