All Terrain Vehicles, Utility-Terrain Vehicle “Gators” & Golf Carts
This is a certification course. It is designed to train employees to safely operate All-Terrain Vehicles (ATVs), golf carts and other similar motorized off-highway vehicles on construction sites. This course meets OSHA and ANSI training requirements and is designed to reduce injuries and fatalities to operators, passengers and pedestrians. Some states require riders to complete a safety course in order to operate an ATV.
