English term or phrase: banksman
The text deals with safety in a construction site, and this part reads "All lorries and other vehicles where the drivers rearward vision is restricted must obtain the assistance of an authorised banksman before reversing in the construction area."

The English definitions of banksman I found say: 1)The person in charge of the shaft and cage or skip at the surface of a colliery; the person at the surface who operates the signals from the cage or skip to the winding engineman.
2) A person employed in the mining industry being in charge of the cages at the pit head. Sometimes known as a BANK MANAGER or BROWMAN.

But I cannot find the Spanish equivalent, so I would appreciate immensely any help.
Regards,
Alicia

Although I believe my first answer is correct, you could probably apply it (in a more specific context) in the following way:

"Asistente Autorizado de Operador de Vehículos Pesados".

Hope this helps:-)
