Course Information Banksman Training Manchester

Manoeuvring and reversing vehicles on site is a major cause of workplace accidents and can lead to serious and sometimes fatal injuries. Employing someone who has received Banksman training reduces the risk of potentially costly accidents and helps the employer comply with health and safety legislation. 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.

Aims and Objectives

The aims and objectives of our Banksman training is to ensure that the candidate who will have the responsibility of assisting in the manoeuvring, reversing and loading/unloading of vehicles is equipped with the correct techniques to perform Banksman duties in an effect, safe and legal manner. Which in turn will reduce accident rates for the employees, goods and property and ensure that the employer has met their duty of care.
