About the employer

The history of work at height is a testament to the people who put their lives on the line every day. Unsafe methods, carelessness, poor equipment... It was no surprise accidents involving height were (and still are) the biggest cause of death in the workplace. Fuelled by the desire to make a difference we set off on a mission to save lives and change the face of an industry. From that moment onwards Leading Edge was born. Fast forward ten years and we’re still working tirelessly in the fight against Gravity. We’ve come a long way since the early days and amassed an incredible team of experts in work at height, education, access solutions and product design who continue to innovate and deliver handcrafted high-end height safety equipment and training courses to individuals and international giants alike, all from our headquarters in the south of England. Leading Edge is more than a company. It’s an ethos. A symbol of integrity, ingenuity and excellence. And that’s why thousands of people all over the world choose us for their height safety training and equipment every year. Come and be part of the journey.
