Reversing Lorry Banksman Training

Reversing Lorry Banksman Training

The Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 requires employers to provide and maintain systems of work which are, so far as is reasonably practicable, safe. The Act also requires employers to take all reasonably practicable precautions to ensure the safety of their workers and members of the public.

The Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992 require the organisation of traffic routes to ensure safety and their maintenance in an adequate condition

The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1992 require employers to assess all risks to the health and safety of their employees and anyone else who may be affected by their work activity. This risk assessment will identify what measures they need to take to comply with the law. The Regulations also require employers to provide their employees with adequate health and safety training.

This means that you should look critically at how people can be put at risk and consider how reversing can be done safely and then take reasonably practicable measures to reduce the risk of injury.
