New legislation came into effect on 24 November 2021 which will require users of All-Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) to complete training and wear appropriate personal protection equipment (PPE) when using these vehicles. Minister for Business, Employment and Retail, Damien English TD, signed the statutory instrument which introduces an obligation on the users of all ATVs to undergo mandatory training and to wear appropriate PPE when using these vehicles for work purposes.
