What is a Vehicle Banksman?

A vehicle banksman, also known as a signaller or spotter, is a person responsible for guiding and directing drivers of vehicles and machinery during manoeuvres, particularly in areas with limited visibility or tight spaces. The banksman plays a critical role in ensuring the safe movement of vehicles and equipment in various settings, including construction sites, warehouses, loading docks, and other industrial or commercial environments.

The Duties of a Vehicle Banksman

  • Guiding Vehicle Movements: The banksman uses hand signals or other forms of clear communication to guide the driver or equipment operator while they are reversing or maneuvering the vehicle. This helps the driver navigate safely, especially when their visibility is restricted.

  • Preventing Accidents: By closely monitoring the vehicle's surroundings, the banksman can identify potential hazards, such as pedestrians, obstacles, or other vehicles, and instruct the driver accordingly to avoid accidents.

  • Managing Traffic: In some cases, a banksman may be responsible for managing the flow of traffic within a worksite or directing vehicles to appropriate parking or loading areas.

  • Ensuring Safety: The banksman ensures that the driver is aware of any hazards and potential risks before moving the vehicle, reducing the likelihood of collisions or accidents.

  • Communication: Effective communication between the banksman and the driver is crucial. Standardized hand signals or radio communication may be used to convey instructions clearly.
