The Ayrton Group provided Linesight with a number of in-house Covid-19 Lead Worker Representative training sessions through CitA Skillnet Ireland. I found them extremely flexible and adaptable to our needs. Links, materials and certificates were all sent in a timely manner. The trainers provided by Ayrton were knowledgeable and engaging and the feedback from participants was very positive. I would have no hesitation in using the Ayrton Group again.

They have used their knowledge and expertise to support us in many ways including the preparation for audits, production of quality Risk Assessments, updated Safety documents, revised SOPs and a range of excellently delivered safety training programmes. I thoroughly recommend their service to any business looking for reliable and competent professionals to help in any area of Health & Safety.
