Site Access Traffic Marshals (SATM) are an important part of safe and effective construction site operations. Simpleducks offer CLOCS approved SATM training to help ensure the safest construction vehicle journeys in and out of sites – a critical part of the CLOCS Standard. Simpleducks offer CLOCS Site Access Traffic Marshal as an 'open' course every week in Ealing West London or we can come to your premises and deliver the SATM training.

Site Access Traffic Marshals (SATMs) stationed at the site entrance are the primary and critical interface between the site, fleet operations and the public. They ensure only authorised vehicles and people enter the site, while also ensuring vehicles entering and leaving the site do so safely and efficiently.

Most sites also have Banksmen who guide vehicles within the site hoardings – these are distinct roles and cannot be done concurrently by the same person though often personnel are rotated between roles.
