Banksmen are used to co-ordinate manoeuvres that require accurate positioning and accessing of vehicles and/or workplace transport. They help oversee operations that have the potential to cause damage or injuries if not performed properly. Banksman training provides staff that have to supervise or assist in the moving, loading and/or unloading of vehicles with the relevant skills and knowledge to reduce the risk of accidents.
