About us

OUR STORY

Leading Edge Safety Systems Pty Ltd was founded in January 2007 by DR GRAHAM EDKINS following a successful 20 year career as a transport (aviation and rail) safety regulator, airline safety manager and government transport safety investigator. In February 2007, our first client became Qantas Corporate Safety who sought expert safety governance advice regarding the planned shutdown of their Cairns based Australian Airlines operation. Today, while we still continue to service the aviation industry, we have well established relationships with clients across a range of other industries including surface and marine transport, power and water utilities, mining, construction and healthcare. We also have a partnership with GLOBAL SAFETY TRAINERS providing bespoke public training programs delivered by trainers who have already built impressive reputations and are highly regarded subject matter experts in their field.

We have access to several highly qualified safety management and human factors consultants based throughout Australia and abroad with expertise in the following areas:
  • WHS Management.
  • Aviation, Rail and Maritime operations.
  • Organisational Psychology/Behavioural Science.
  • Mining, Engineering and Construction.
  • Emergency and Crisis Management.
  • Utilities and Essential Services.
  • Military/Defence Services.
The scope of our services ranges from specific human factors training solutions to broader based safety management and fatal risk management solutions.

Whether it is compliance with industry based safety legislation, Australian Standards or recommended industry practice, our services are designed to exceed the highest industry standards and regulations to give you a LEADING EDGE.
