Banksman (Reversing Assistant) Group Training

Price: £ 550.00 + VAT

Price for non-members: £ 650.00 + VAT

Nearly a quarter of all deaths involving vehicles at work occur while the vehicle is reversing.

Many more accidents do not result in injury but cause costly damage to vehicles, equipment and premises.
Most accidents happen at low speeds and could be prevented by taking some simple safety precautions.

The Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992 require the organisation of traffic
routes to ensure safety and their maintenance in an adequate condition.
This means that you should look critically at how people can be put at risk and consider how reversing
can be done safely and then take any reasonably practicable measures to reduce the risk of injury.
To comply with these regulations it is essential that any business that has vehicles reversing within
premises or property, whether they be your own or a third parties, must have competent Banksman (Reversing Assistant)

The RHA Banksman course encompasses both practical and theory tuition that ensures that delegates have a thorough understanding of what procedures must be adhered to when reversing vehicles in a working environment.


There is not a set formula to follow that will create a safe system of work. However
delegates on this course will be shown how to work through and answer questions such as:

1. What vehicle manoeuvres are necessary?
2. Can the need to reverse vehicles be avoided?
3. If vehicles must reverse, can people be removed from the area?
4. Is there adequate space for reversing?
5. Have you considered all possible ways of dealing with the dangers of reversing vehicles?
6. Could the workplace be modified to make operations safer, where it is reasonably practicable to do so?

• Banksman training is carried out on customers premises.
• Use of a appropriate vehicle will be required for the duration of the training.
• All delegates must have the appropriate workwear, including hi-viz waistcoat,
safety helmet and safety shoes or boots.

Training is for up to 8 delegates per 3 hour session

Two sessions are possible on the same day for a reduced rate from £795.00 + VAT
