About Banksman Training

Banksman, or traffic marshalls, helps direct large vehicles and guides them properly, especially when reversing, to present and avoid accidents and injuries. Banksmen help direct traffic in areas such as construction zones on a road.

It is a legal responsibility of the relevant duty holders to provide vehicle safety and risk control measures where site transport occurs, including on construction sites. If a public vehicle is passing through or near a construction zone, it must be made safe via a banksman and other safety procedures.

Why Is Banksman Training Important?

There are about 5,000 accidents involving workplace transport every year. About 50 of these are fatal, according to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). Being struck by a moving vehicle accounts for around 19% of workplace deaths, with many more receiving injuries.

This banksman training course provide vital workplace transport safety information, which will support reducing the likelihood of fatal accidents and severe injuries occurring.
