Who Will Benefit?

Managers, supervisors, safety professionals and/or operatives who are required to oversee or carry out work with Coil Trailers. If you physically deploy Coil Trailers and haven't had any formal training, this course is essential to minimise risk to yourself and those around you. 


A physical deployment of an actual coil via a Coil trailer does not take place during the awareness training due to the potential risks involved in doing so as part of the ‘training environment.’

This course is designed as AWARENESS ONLY and does not include a practical assessment or actual usage of a trailer. Any outside viewing of the trailer (provided by each client) is purely used as a discussion point.

Important Notes

In order for this training to be of the highest quality we ask clients to provide Groundforce Training with the specific makes and models of Coil Trailer(s) being used by your organisation

This course does not teach or license individuals to tow trailers. To do so a B+E test may be required.
