Banksman Training

Companies that use cranes or large diggers and dumpers or that have a number of vehicles, such as heavy goods vehicles entering their site regularly, require a trained Vehicle Banksman to control the movements from the point of loading and unloading.

There must be a safe system of work that ensures the Banksman and driver are using standard signals, so that they are easily understood, and that the driver knows to stop the vehicle immediately if the Banksman disappears from view.

Our course offers an in-depth one day course that provides delegates with the basic knowledge and practical skills involved in being a safe Vehicle Banksman.
