How can we keep signallers safe?

Ensure that they are trained and competent to direct lifting operations

	Provide a protected position from which they can work in safety

	Provide distinctive ‘hi viz’ clothing for identification

	Tell drivers that if they cannot see the signaller they should stop immediately

	Agree on the use of standard signals

You’ll find the standard signals in the Health and Safety (Signs and Signals) Regulations 1996 L64, or watch the video [Workplace transport – Banksman’s signals](
