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
