Taking a unique approach to health, safety, sustainability and security services

A company with a sharp focus on positively impacting organisations and communities

Our fresh approach to health, safety, sustainability and security services originates from wanting to do things differently. We have a mission to alter what can be a negative perception of the industry and move away from the frustrating box-ticking approach to do something different.

Driven by our passion to have a positive impact on the organisations and communities in which we operate, we are changing the face of health and safety. We study our clients’ requirements to understand their unique operations and develop bespoke solutions based on analysing and understanding data concerning clients’ risk profiles and appetite for change.

This effective approach has enabled EDP to deliver work for businesses of all sizes across the world.

History

For more than a quarter of a century, EDP has been helping businesses of all sizes to manage health, safety, environmental and sustainability issues.

Established in the early 1990s, our consultancy has continually evolved and continues to support businesses following the introduction of the health and safety six-pack of regulations that adhere to European Commission directives. Simultaneously, we have continued to refine and perfect our services, including a full suite of health and safety services, which enables us to work with some of the largest and most well-known organisations in the world.

In the early 2000s, we expanded our services to include environmental management. We introduced sustainability services before sustainability became an industry talking point.

Owing to increased demand and securing major contracts, EDP opened its Singapore office in 2004 to assist in delivering multidisciplinary health, safety and environmental services.

In 2014, EDP’s management completed a buyout from the original founder. Three years later and building on the success of the buyout in addition to our long-term growth strategy, we acquired IOM Consulting’s asbestos site services division comprising more than 30 staff and 4 offices.

In 2019, EDP opened its Sydney office, having operated in Australia since 2017.

In 2021, the RSK Group acquired EDP. RSK is a global leader in providing sustainable environmental and engineering services, including health and safety, environmental consultancy, site investigation and planning, civil and structural engineering and energy management and sustainability. The acquisition marked an important stage in the life of EDP. It was a significant point of acceleration in our strategy to build a multi-disciplinary health, safety, sustainability and security consultancy business.

Now, we are focusing on driving excellence in serving and supporting businesses to help them protect their people, property and reputations.

In 2021, we opened offices in Hong Kong and Tokyo to better serve our APAC customers that require us to have physical presence in country. We have also developed an international network of specialists which enables us to support clients with truly global projects utilising our direct staff, RSK Group staff and selected third party expertise.

Values and culture

EDP aims to have a positive impact on the businesses it supports, the people it interacts with and the communities in which it operates. We achieve this by creating a culture that fosters our values of integrity, respect, service and collaboration.

  • Integrity – always acting fairly, ethically and openly in all we do
  • Respect – valuing all individuals and nurturing internal and external relationships through listening and understanding
  • Service – putting our clients at the centre of what we do and tirelessly focusing on the quality of the work we provide
  • Collaboration – enhancing our contribution through collaboration with all our stakeholders

By living these values, we have created a client-focused, vibrant team, and that can only be a good thing for our clients.
