This training programme is directed at anyone who is responsible for the safe movement of site traffic or assisting in manoeuvring, loading, or unloading vehicles. Workplace transport is used in a variety of situations in factory yards, warehouses, loading bays, storage depots, and construction sites. However, it is still the second most common cause of fatal injury in the workplace.
It is essential that vehicles are able to move safely around the workplace, and a qualified banksman can make this happen. On the course, staff will gain the relevant knowledge required to reverse or manoeuver vehicles by signal, either individually or as part of a team, which will reduce the risk of injury to colleagues, members of the public, and property.
This course lasts for one day and hosts up to six people.
