Who is the course for?

Banksman training is designed to ensure that companies meet their legal obligations and minimise the risk of costly accidents or potential fatalities when manoeuvering and reversing vehicles in their premises.

Reversing vehicles account for almost a quarter of all fatal vehicle-related accidents at work. These vehicles, usually reversing at low speed, can cause damage to vehicles, property and equipment. Taking simple safety precautions can prevent these accidents.
