Banksmen are sometimes known as traffic marshals. They are responsible for the safe direction of traffic around a site. All Banksmen are required to complete a recognised training scheme by the Health and Safety Executive. Such training ensures that companies meet legal requirements and reduces the risk of accidents while vehicles are moving or reversing around a site. It is absolutely crucial training since nearly a quarter of all deaths involving vehicles at work occur while a vehicle is reversing. By undertaking suitable training, employee safety can be guaranteed and it becomes possible to avoid costly claims following accidents.
