The British Association of Landscape Industries (BALI) & the National Contractor Forum (NCF) will be hosting a health and safety led event investigating the risks and different methods involved in vegetated embankment management.

Severn Trent have granted BALI access to the large reservoir embankments at Draycote Water, one of the largest reservoirs in the Midlands.   The picturesque site boasts some considerable grass embankments and will be a testing ground for a range of specialized machinery.  This will be a great opportunity for grounds maintenance and landscape contractors to benchmark a range of machinery.

A range of product manufacturers and technical specialists including the HSE will also be available to discuss vegetation and machinery management issues.
