Our Story

Founded in Cork in 1993 as Health & Safety Services (HSS) by Managing Director Kieran Linehan, a Chartered Fellow of the Institution of Occupational Safety & Health (IOSH), Ayrton Group has evolved from its origins as an occupational health & safety training provider.

Responding to substantial demand, Ayrton Group expanded its services to include specialized consultancy, bespoke training, and even established a dedicated traffic management division. With over 100 employees, the company gained a reputation for innovation and excellence that extended well beyond its Cork roots.

In 2000, Ayrton Group entered the Dublin market, later relocating to a custom-built, state-of-the-art headquarters and a 14,000 sq ft training academy in 2007. This growth continued in 2016 with the establishment of a purpose-chosen, fully equipped training academy and offices in Dublin, coinciding with a rebrand to Ayrton Group. This rebrand reflected a broader service offering and a commitment to the future.

Today, Ayrton Group provides an expanding array of safety and risk management resources and services to clients in Ireland, Europe, and the UK, and our growth trajectory continues.
