Our Story

Ayrton Group was founded in Cork in 1993 as Health & Safety Services (HSS) by Managing Director Kieran Lenihan, a Chartered Fellow of the Institution of Occupational Safety & Health (IOSH).

Originally a provider of occupational health & safety training, the company expanded on the back of significant demand to also offer specialist consultancy and bespoke training services in addition to the establishment of a traffic management division within the company, growing to over 100 employees and gaining a reputation for innovation and excellence that spread significantly beyond its Cork base.

In 2000 we established our presence in the Dublin market, in 2007 we moved into our custom built state of the art headquarters and 14,000 sq ft training academy and in 2016, this expansion culminated in the establishment of a purpose chosen, fully equipped training academy & offices in Dublin and a rebrand to Ayrton Group, reflecting a broader service offering and a commitment to the future.

Today Ayrton Group offers an ever growing suite of safety and risk management resources and services to a client base in Ireland, Europe and the UK, and continues to grow.
