What to look for when recruiting temp banksmen

With more than 50 people killed and 5,000 people injured every year during vehicle movements at work, ensuring that vehicles enter, exit, move and reverse safely on a construction site is very important. This is why the role of a banksman, also called traffic marshal, is crucial to the security of your construction site.

If you need your banksman to direct crane operations, you’ll typically look to hire a slinger banksman or signaller.

While a banksman does not need any particular qualification, they will need to know the general banksman signals, in line with the Health and Safety Executive (HSE)-approved standard hand signals. They will need to be clear about their role, responsibilities and risks associated with their job.

You can train them onsite, but it’s also preferable to offer them a 1-day training course such as the Level 2 Traffic Management and Vehicle Banksman course that costs between £45 and £70. At interview, you can then check that they know how to signal a danger and ask vehicle drivers to move forward, backwards or stop.

One aspect to check is that they have great concentration skills. As it might be difficult to tell during an interview, you might want to ask for references to discuss it.

Don’t forget to ask if they’re ready to be on their feet, all day (or at night, should the role require it), in all weather conditions.

Finally, leave time in the interview to check that they have great communication skills, and a good understanding of how a construction site operates, and what are the main risks associated with it.

You probably have a good idea of what you need a banksman to do for you. But to make things easy, we give you a job description to start from and a suggested budget. Typically banksmen will perform the following duties:

  • Assisting machine drivers, overseeing the movement of tower cranes on site
  • Banking machines and vehicles
  • Removing material on site
  • Dealing with deliveries

Typically, recruitment agencies will charge between £16.50 and £20.50 per hour for banksmen. This includes what the candidate is paid, their National Insurance and holiday payments, as well as the agency margin. Your budget should take into account the experience of the secretary and their working location. For example, expect to pay more in London, where the Living Wage is £10.55 per hour.
