Traffic Marshal (Banksman)
INCREASE YOUR CHANCES FOR EMPLOYMENT WITH OUR HALF DAY TRAFFIC MARSHAL (BANKSMAN) TRAINING COURSE.
WHAT IS A BANKSMAN COURSE?
Banksmen are operatives trained to direct vehicle movement on or around site. They are often called traffic marshal
CAN WE STILL USE BANKSMEN FOR REVERSING VEHICLE?
Yes, however only trained and authorised. There is a hierarchy of control which places segregation at the top. Banksmen should only be used in circumstances where other control measure are not possible.
HOW CAN WE KEEP BANKSMEN SAFE?
- Ensure that they are trained and competent to direct moving vehicles
- Provide a protected position from which they can work safely
- Provide distinctive “hi viz” clothing for identification
- Tell drivers that if they cannot see the Banksmen they should stop immediately
- Agree on the use of standard signals
WHATS THE PROBLEM?
Nearly a quarter of all deaths involving vehicles at work occur during reversing. Many other reversing accidents do not result in injury but cause costly damage to vehicles, equipment and premises. Most of these accidents can be avoided by taking simple precautions which will be explained during the courses.
