Do I need a strimming ticket
« on: May 11, 2017, 09:46:58 pm »
Iv started a new job as a handy man and one of the jobs is cutting the verges in public places do I need a qualification to do this ?  It's just a wire strimmer not a brush cutter thanks

Legally speaking, I've no idea. However I'd be extremely surprised if you were covered by insurance without having the ticket.
