Meet our IPAF Instructors

Dunboyne, Ireland – 10 June 2021 

Nationwide Safety Training (NST), one of Ireland’s leading H&S Training and Consultancy companies, is pleased to announce that our colleagues Willie Keague and Stephen Ryan have been certified as IPAF Instructors. IPAF is a global organisation, promoting the safe and effective use of powered access equipment. Certification as an IPAF Instructor enables Stephen and Willie to deliver IPAF’s industry-leading training programmes for mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs). 

Prior to launching NST, Willie worked in the field with Height for Hire. He now joins an elite group of IPAF Instructors in Ireland, qualified to deliver IPAF MEWPs Operator Training to ISO 18878 standard. 

Stephen is no stranger to heights, having previously run a successful roofing business, before upskilling as a trainer with NST in 2017. Attaining IPAF Certification shows his, and our, commitment to quality.    

At NST, we take pride in setting standards. We deliver the highest quality H&S Training and Consultancy services. Adding IPAF Certification is a natural step forward in our pursuit of excellence.

What We Do


  • Willie from Nationwide Safety Training trained our staff in Manual Handling and feedback on the training was great, everyone learned something and had some fun in the process. NST also provided Forklift Training for 3 of our staff recently and they informed me it was the best Forklift Training they had ever received.

  •  I completed the Working At Height  and Abrasive wheels instructor courses.  The instructors were first class and the content was presented clearly and backed up with excellent handouts.  For me, the most enjoyable parts of the courses were the class participation.  I would really recommend NST for any training requirements.
