Trained On-Site Traffic Marshalls / Banksmen
A Vehicle Banksman will be the eyes and ears of a truck driver, making sure manoeuvres they make are safe and don’t put the driver or anyone else in danger. The Banksman communicates with the driver via pre-arranged hand signals. By doing this the Banksman can inform the driver of what is going on around the vehicle since they may not have a complete view or clear visibility. A Vehicle Banksman can also be called upon for many other duties such as directing traffic in and around the site. As such they are sometimes also called traffic marshals. Veritech can supply Manned Guards who are also fully trained traffic marshalls/banksman.
The importance and responsibility of this job mean it requires Banksmen to be fully trained. In turn, the training for any Vehicle Banksman needs to be thorough and comprehensive. It’s essential to have knowledge of all the health and safety aspects associated with this job. This includes :
- Knowing what responsibilities a Vehicle Banksman has
- The main causes of accidents
- How to prevent common accidents
- Understanding equipment and machinery
- The correct procedures for manoeuvring equipment
It’s a job which is always in demand and highly valued, not just by employers but by work colleagues. According to statistics, nearly one in four deaths which involve a vehicle at work, are when it’s reversing. It’s easy to see, with this fact alone, why a Vehicle Banksman has such an important role to play in any work area.
Why Do you Need a Vehicle Banksman?
As well as deaths and injuries, there can be significant and costly damage to vehicles and other on-site equipment in an uncontrolled environment. A Vehicle Banksman has the important responsibility of trying to ensure these accidents don’t happen. The other side of this is that being a Vehicle Banksman can be an extremely rewarding job, one which repays training with giving any individual a fulfilling, rewarding and satisfying role in the workplace.
With training and qualifications, a Banksman can be vital in a number of different working environments such as docks, factories, loading bays and storage depots. Places such as building sites, for instance, which often have large vehicles, trucks, diggers and cranes all in one relatively enclosed space need a good Vehicle Banksman to take control and direct vehicle operations. In simple terms, the better the training, the better the Banksman – which is why when it comes to training you should make sure you always go to a recognised training company which is well respected within the industry.
