    Course Description:

    • This course is to guide your fleet to safety with expert banksman training
    The role of Banksman:
    • The person in charge of directing the movements of large vehicles on a work site by using a system of hand signals or a radio link in order to prevent these accidents and keep workers safe. They make sure any manoeuvres made during loading and unloading don’t put the driver or anyone else in danger.
