https://videotilehost.com/kshsafety/purchaseCourse.php?nid=152


One of over 100 courses available now at www.kshsafetyonline.com



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 banksman 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.


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.


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