    Yes, given a suitable risk assessment is conducted in conjunction with a trained and certified plant operator factoring risks such as manoeuvring with a boom or while the Plant Machine is loaded.
    If training is completed using a LGV, does this mean the certification is restricted to only Banking LGVs?
