The Banksman will also control the movements of excavator or other mobile plant, by carefully monitoring the bucket for any obstructions and other vehicle movements and pedestrians.

 

Duties & Responsibilities

  • Clearly direct vehicles and mobile plant at all times ensuring they are kept separate.
  • Minimise the amount of reversing where possible and be aware of the dangers caused when reversing.
  • Use practical techniques and agreed system of signalling and hand signals to assist drivers and operatives in all manoeuvres.
  • Be visible to drivers at all times whilst directing vehicles and plant.
  • Stand in a safe position, from which to guide all vehicles without being in the way.
