Banksman courses

Guiding your fleet to safety with expert banksman training

What is the role of a banksman?

According to the HSE, on average 7 workers die as a result of accidents involving vehicles or mobile plant on construction sites each year. A vehicle banksman is the person in charge of directing the movements of large vehicles on a work site by using a system of hand signals or a radio link in order to prevent these accidents and keep workers safe. They make sure any manoeuvres made during loading and unloading don’t put the driver or anyone else in danger.

"All of our employees enjoyed the course and felt they gained valuable experience and training which will enable them to carry out their job to a higher and safer standard."

Why take banksman training?

Reversing manoeuvres are common, but dangerous – particularly in confined spaces. Banksman training ensures that organisations meet their legal requirements and reduce the risk of costly accidents when carrying out large vehicle reversing manoeuvres.
