Frequently asked questions

What’s the different between a Vehicle Banksman and a Traffic Marshal?
Vehicle Banksman and Traffic Marshal are two terms that describe the same thing.
Can I direct Plant Machinery using this training?
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?
