Ride on Roller

Course Introduction

The NPORS 214 – Ride on Road Roller course is a comprehensive training program designed to equip participants with the essential skills required for the safe and efficient operation of ride-on road rollers in the construction industry. This course covers a range of critical aspects, including pre-use inspection and handovers, operational techniques, and the completion of rolling/compacting tasks, among other associated construction activities.

One of the primary focuses of the course is on conducting thorough pre-use inspections and handovers. Participants will learn how to meticulously examine ride-on road rollers to ensure that they are in optimal working condition before operation. This includes checking for any mechanical issues, verifying fluid levels, inspecting safety features, and ensuring that all controls are functioning correctly. The emphasis on pre-use inspections is crucial for maintaining a safe working environment and preventing potential accidents or equipment malfunctions.

The course provides hands-on training in the safe and efficient operation of ride-on road rollers. Participants will gain practical experience in handling the equipment, understanding its controls, and manoeuvring it effectively on construction sites. Safety protocols and best practices will be emphasized to minimize risks and ensure the well-being of both operators and those working in the vicinity.

A significant component of the training is devoted to mastering the art of rolling and compacting. Participants will learn the proper techniques for achieving the desired compaction results, considering factors such as soil type and project specifications. The ability to efficiently carry out these tasks is essential for the success of construction projects, as proper compaction is crucial for the stability and longevity of structures.
