Initially United Safety provided H2S protection and safety consulting services to the western Canadian Oil and Gas industry . The company also won several small offshore contracts in Atlantic Canada. Services in 1987 included H2S protection, safety equipment rentals, safety & loss control consulting services and emergency response planning.

Since the introduction of these services, United Safety's commitment and dedication to the provision of world class safety services to this sector of the Oil and Gas industry has generated tremendous response both within Canada and abroad. Recognition of United's innovative service products, its quality based systems and procedures, and its knowledged approach to the Plant Turnaround & Maintenance Services business has earned United Safety an enviable reputation as best in class provider of such services to a significant number of clients. At the turn of the millenium United Safety was able to claim 30 % of its revenues from this sector of the industry.
In 1991, United's established infrastructure, capabilities and reputation allowed successful diversification to the International sector. The company's strategy, to establish a solid, credible and reputable international safety service group to provide H2S protection through value based H2S safety equipment rental services and knowledge based H2S safety supervisory services to international operators around the globe.

The company started with revenues of 2 1/2 million in 1987 to current operations which will produce more than 10 times that at the end of fiscal 2002 ( Jan 31,2002 ), a time which coincides with a milestone event for the company - its 15th year of full time dedicated H2S services to the oil and gas industry. The company's mandate when it started in 1987 has never changed, to provide "best in class " services and products to our customers.
Over the course of the last 15 years the company's internal quality based systems and processes have evolved to lead the safety industry. The latest move to the newly established Technical Operations Center in Airdrie, Alberta along with continued expansion and ongoing development of existing domestic and international facilities has permitted us to subject our quality management systems, our procedures and internal processes to continual testing and refinement over time. The result - incorporation of advanced and proven service delivery systems leading to significant gains in performance. Strongly recognized by our client group, this has translated into increased market share both domestically and around the globe.
