    Vehicle Banksman Training

    Training and Testing Services offer a fantastic Vehicle Banksman Training Course, so that you feel confident that your staff have the knowledge and skillset required to prevent accidents and vehicle damage at work.

    Banksmen are trained signallers. They are trained to guide drivers during difficult manoeuvres, and keep pedestrians away from the reversing zone.

    Nearly a quarter of all deaths involving vehicles at work occur during reversing. Many other reversing accidents do not result in injury, but cause damage to vehicles, equipment and premises. This can add up and cost the business significant amounts of money.

    Most of these accidents can be avoided by taking simple precautions, such as setting up one-way systems with drive-through loading and unloading positions, which can often be more efficient.

    However, there are some cases in which reversing is a necessary part of the job. When this is the case, routes should be organised to minimise the amount of reversing required, and a banksman or yardman should be employed.
