EDGE Services was established in 1998 by Kate Lovett, a Senior Lecturer at the University of Hertfordshire – School of Health and Human Sciences.
Kate had a clinical background in nursing specifically in adult orthopaedics and rehabilitation and as a lecturer she became aware that many local care organisations required manual handling training which the university did not have the capacity to provide. Later having relocated to York, Kate set up as a sole trader to provide the training which many healthcare organisations were struggling to find. Demand was such that training became further afield.
One by one additional trainers joined; and, before long, now incorporated, the company has established itself at the forefront of health and safety training across the UK healthcare and special needs educations sectors.
In September 2021 EDGE Services became part of the RAH Group founded by Craig Haley and Paul Melling. Craig has an active role within EDGE Services as Managing Director. He and the well established EDGE Services team are looking forward to future developments for the company.
