Therefore, a traffic marshall 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.

They can also work with other operatives in order to get involved in site logistics after some experience and further training on the site.

Nearly a quarter of all deaths involving vehicles at work occur during reversing. Reversing accidents not involving injuries can also result in in damages to vehicles, equipment, and premises. Therefore, one of the main reasons for employing a Traffic Marshal is to improve safety levels on site.

Most of these accidents can be avoided by employing a Traffic Marshal to implement simple and effective precautions.
