ITSSAR Forklift and Plant Training Northern Ireland

BSD Training have been carrying out forklift training for over 20 years and all our instructors have a wealth of experience and training knowledge. We have a number of counterbalance forklifts, pallet trucks, a telescopic and a reach truck at our training centre in Lisburn and training is carried out daily on these machines. If you need forklift training but don't have access to a forklift or are an individual looking to further their skills we can provide a course to suit you.

BSD Training Ltd are proud to be one of only a handful of Forklift Training centres in Northern Ireland to actually have our own facilities to carryout the training and also our own fleet of forklifts. We don't require you to source a forklift and premises and simply have a trainer turn up and carry out training, we can provide accredited training using the proper facilities and this can all be done at our centre without any hassle or inconvenience to you.

All our instructors are accredited by ITSSAR to carry out lift truck and plant and machinery training to their high industry accreditation standards.

ITSSAR is approved and listed as an accrediting organisation by the Health & Safety Commission (HSC) in the Approved Code of Practice (ACoP) for Lift Truck Operator Training.Its sole function is to write and monitor training standards for a broad range of mechanical handling equipment including construction plant, crane operation, lifting and rigging operations, and slinging and signalling. This ensures that its registrants are delivering the highest quality of training within the workplace.The Standards are relevant, current, and comprehensive and far exceed the Accrediting Bodies Forum 2000.

Periodic review of all the Course Syllabus Manuals takes place, and these manuals are re-addressed by the ITSSAR Standards Forum. This Forum is made up of selected experienced ITSSAR training providers who have a vast knowledge and expertise in a wide range of mechanical handling equipment.

Training; paperwork; legislation; and facilities are continuously monitored by Training Standards Advisors. A monitoring report is submitted to each training organisation via Head Office to assist in maintaining standards.
