Course Description

This course will cover common vehicle reversing accidents and the crucial role played by the banksman. It’ll also look at the controls and actions that can reduce the likelihood of such accidents.

The course will start by identifying the three main categories of reversing accidents – injuries to pedestrians, damage to objects in the workplace, and damage to street furniture along with coverage of other types of accidents.

You’ll learn about the role of management in preventing reversing accidents, particularly the use of risk assessments and Safe Systems of Work, plus the provision of appropriate Personal Protection Equipment.

You’ll get an overview of the main legislation applying to banksmen’s activities, before examining the actual role and the duties of banksmen on site, including safety rules, controls, and guidelines.

The rules applying to drivers will also be covered, and we’ll look at the way drivers and banksmen can work together safely.

Finally, we’ll cover vehicle hazard safety checks and the industry-standard hand and verbal signals that banksmen can use during vehicle manoeuvres.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Understand the role and importance of a Banksman.
  • Recognise the common accidents that can occur and which categories they fall into.
  • Identify the key pieces of legislation that aid with the role of the Banksman.
  • Implement controls and risk assessments to minimise accidents.
  • Explain the different safety checks and signals that are used.

Target Audience

This online banksman training course is aimed at those in construction or heavy industry who are responsible for the movement of vehicles. This could include site supervisors or managers.

Advantages

Understanding why problems occur and having the tools to solve common problems quickly will ensure work runs smoothly.

Online training is flexible, efficient, and cost-effective, meaning the candidate can progress through the modules at their own pace and in their own time, so they can fit the training around their work and personal life.

Further Progression

For those needing further safety in construction training, courses such as Asbestos Awareness, Noise Awareness, and Working at Height should be completed alongside this one.

For Supervisors who want to continue to enhance their skills, courses such as Introduction to Risk Assessment or Leadership Skills would make great next steps.
