Course Overview

Our traffic marshal training is designed to meet the challenges of the many different sectors that now require traffic marshals and Banksman. A Traffic Marshal or Banksman is an operative trained to direct vehicle and plant movement on or around a construction or parking site. They also monitor and manage traffic entering and leaving site related to deliveries or pickups as well as create temporary or permanent routes and barriers. Some highly experienced and trained Traffic Marshals may also be involved in site logistics where they will work with other contractors to create a weekly schedules of expected vehicle and plant traffic movement in and out of site.

One of the main reasons for employing a Traffic Marshal is to improve safety levels on site. Nearly a quarter of all deaths involving vehicles at work occur during reversing. Reversing accidents not involving injuries can also result in do not result in damages to vehicles, equipment and premises. The majority of these accidents can be avoided by employing a Traffic Marshal to implement simple and effective precautions. Our course follows the HSE Health and Safety (Signs and Signals) Regulations 1996 which means our Training is consistent and universal to meet your legal training obligations.
