Vehicle Banksman Training Course
The Forktruckman certificate for the Vehicle Banksman does not include any authority for the Vehicle Banksman to become involved in the direction of vehicles on the public highway. Any Vehicle Banksman asked or required to assist in this area must act with great care and avoid unnecessary obstructions to other road users.
Practical training and assessment will be undertaken on the customers premises. Natural hazards will probably arise, and may be created by simulation ( boxes/crates to limit vision, etc.) provided care is taken, candidates waiting their turn for practice/testing may be used as ‘stooges’ and should be encouraged to take part in ‘problem solving’ exercises.
