Reversing Assistant / Banksman Course

Reversing Assistant Training for Health & Safety at Work

All vehicles have blindspots and a "Reversing Assistant" can help guide a driver in overcoming these.

Other people can easily walk into the blindspot of reversing vehicles, sometimes without understanding what is happening or realising the danger that they are putting themselves in.

A "Reversing Assistant" can be of the utmost importance when vehicles are being moved and the safety of people is the main consideration.

There may be other drivers who enter the area in which vehicles are being moved about. These drivers may be putting vehicles and other property or equipment at risk if not controlled.

It is fair to say then that a "Reversing Assistant" not only assists in moving a vehicle, but they also control the whole area in which the reversing takes place.

Whatever the size of a vehicle and no matter how good the driver is, there is always, due to the very nature of us as human beings, a risk. A real risk of being killed or seriously injured if hit by a moving vehicle.
