Unorganized
Safety Watch (Current Employee), Airdrie, ABOctober 6, 2014
United Safety has poor culture, they don't care about their staff and push them around like robots. You never know when you are going to work and they can call you up in the spur of the moment and expect you to go to work.

on the job
safety (Current Employee), Fort Saskatchewan, ABAugust 19, 2014
Pros: potlucks
Cons: long hours but well worth it
Typical day at work will include gearing up in safety protective gear, having a safety meeting , making sure crossovers and information is understood for the job . i have learned lots of information its hard to put on paper but have learned that communication is the key and being part of a good team to make success happen within a company . The hardest – more... part of the job is making deadlines meet with whether be rigging in a job for contractors or making sure equipment is clean for the next shift . You get to meet new contractors and some of the same ones going from project to project but have to stay focused on your job . – less

Good entry level job
Safety Watch (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABJuly 17, 2013
Pros: training and learnig experience
Cons: no benefits, low salary
United Safety provided safety watch for its contractors at Shell. My job was to ensure the safety of the workers, make sure they are working safely and wearing proper equipment.

It was a good entry level job in terms of getting a good experience working in the oil and gas industry.

There was no benefits, and the pay was well below my expectations.There – more... was no job security or advancement to grow with the company. But I did learn quite a few things and got good experience. – less

Working here provides a good feeling of job satisfaction.
Safety Specialist (Former Employee), Drayton Valley, ABApril 24, 2013
Pros: excellent meals provided by the camp cooking staff.
Cons: long hours and being far from home for weeks at a time.
Typical shift starts with loading equipment onto a pick-up, driving to the designated drilling location, installing H2S alarm system and rigging in airlines, reviewing the way the equipment operates for the benefit of the drilling crew, doing an H2S drill, then monitoring the equipment on a regular (hourly) basis to ensure it is ready for use. It is – more... also the responsibility of the safety supervisor to provide lease control so that only personnel trained in H2S, 1st Aid and CPR are allowed on site. The Safety Supervisor is responsible to United Safety management, drilling site consultant and the rig manager to ensure equipment is safety equipment is in top operating condition. Most of the time there will be one or more United Safety personnel on site, depending on the size and location of the drilling operation.

The hardest part of the job, as well as the most potentially dangerous part of the job is the responding to and H2S release alarm.

The most enjoyable part is the camaraderie among the workers on site when the work is proceeding as it should. – less
