Vehicle banksman training is an excellent way for companies to meet legal requirements and reduce the risk of accidents when carrying out common, but dangerous reversing manoeuvres. It is one of the most important jobs in any workplace, where reversing manoeuvring large vehicles takes place. Ensuring site/yard staff are properly trained can reduce the risk of serious and sometimes fatal accidents occurring.
TL Training recognises the importance of the role of the vehicle banksman. They are the eyes and ears of the crane or truck driver and must communicate faultlessly to the driver via radio link or pre-arranged hand signals.
Because their role is so important, it is vital that they receive full and comprehensive training. Our Banksman Training Course is interactive, educational and informative. We cover a range of topics to ensure all candidates are fully aware of their role within the business and their responsibilities in regards to the safety of themselves and their colleagues.
The aim of the course is to raise awareness of the dangers that can arise during manoeuvring and reversing large vehicles. Other topics covered within the course include:
- The responsibility of the banksman
- Health & Safety at work act and other relevant legislation
- Workplace transport safety policy
- Importance of communication
- Pre-planning the reversing manoeuvre
- The use of hand and arm signals
