ATV/UTV Safety Training

ATV/UTV Safety Training

Off-highway vehicles (OHVs) like ATVs and UTVs are fun recreational vehicles as well as useful work tools when jobs need to be completed in the bush. Because of their recreational status, we sometimes underestimate their potential for hazards. But their unique builds and specific operating requirements can easily make operators the victims of incidents if they are not aware of the dangers of operation.
Using live-action demonstrations, animated diagrams, and interactive activities, this online ATV/UTV Safety course provides you with the knowledge necessary to operate and control your OHV both safely and effectively. Throughout the course, we cover hazards common to OHV operation, hazard controls, ATV and UTV components, and best practices for operation.
