What’s the different between a Vehicle Banksman and a Traffic Marshal?

Vehicle Banksman and Traffic Marshal are two terms that describe the same thing.

Can I direct Plant Machinery using this training?

Yes, given a suitable risk assessment is conducted in conjunction with a trained and certified plant operator factoring risks such as manoeuvring with a boom or while the Plant Machine is loaded.

If training is completed using a LGV, does this mean the certification is restricted to only Banking LGVs?

Whether candidates complete Vehicle Banksman training using a normal road car, a heavy goods vehicle or plant machinery, the role and responsibilities of the Vehicle Banksman remain the same.

Certification is not restricted to banking a particular type of vehicle.

Vehicle Banksman training is an effective way of improving the overall safety of a working environment where vehicles are required to reverse or perform maneuvres. Vehicle Banksman are a legal requirement on many sites and a strong recommendation for any site where reversing of vehicles is unavoidable.

Nearly a quarter of all workplace transport injuries occur when vehicles are reversing. Vehicle Banksman offer drivers a trustworthy second perspective while maneuvering to play a key part in reducing accidents.

A suitable vehicle with driver will be required for the practical elements of the Vehicle Banksman course.
