Welcome to DS UK Training

DS UK is one of the leading training providers in the UK. It is a family run business established in 1999 by Paul & Chris Murphy. Our aim is to provide the highest standard of ITSSAR accredited Counterbalance, Reach & Side Loader Forklifts, Power Pallet Truck, Scissor Lift & Cherry Picker as well as refresher training.

Forklift Truck training

We are an ITSSAR accredited company providing forklift truck training for all types of trucks. These include counterbalance, pivot steer, reach trucks, Tele-handler and pallet trucks. We can also provide refresher and conversion courses. We maintain high quality levels of training at all times.

We can also provide non-accredited Forklift Training which allows an individual to use the FLT while they remain in your employ. We train individuals of all skill levels, from complete novices to skilled operators requiring re-validation. As a company we have a no-nonsense approach to our training. It is your responsibility as a company manager to make sure you are up to date with the HSE Health & Safety legislation requirements.

Forklift Truck Training

Forklift truck training may seem like a major investment, but it is one which undoubtedly pays off in terms of the benefits to your business. Not only does appropriate forklift truck training mean that you will meet the necessary health and safety regulations, but it will also give you a more skilled and productive workforce, with less risk of accidental damage to stock, equipment or premises.

We can provide training on your own site giving operators the advantage of getting to know the equipment and loads that they will be working with on a day to day basis. It means that your operators don’t require the travel time or expenses of travelling to training centres.
