Vehicle Banksman will be the eyes and ears of the  driver and make sure any manoeuvres they make are safe and don’t put the driver or anyone else in danger. The Banksman communicates with the driver via a radio link or pre-arranged hand signals. By doing this the Banksman can inform the driver of what is going on around the vehicle since they may not have a complete view or clear visibility. A Vehicle Banksman can also be called upon for many other duties such as directing traffic in and around the site. As such they are sometimes also called traffic marshals.
