Good introduction to oil field safety
Safety Technician and Lead-hand (Former Employee), Airdrie ABApril 23, 2015
Pros: Good Training
Cons: Long Hours
Despite its well known brand name this company lacks the ability for good management. All people from different walks of life come in and it would have had good potential. Top level guys don't know their superiorities and keep on crashing each other all the time. I am not so sure how it is fairing presently after the Saudi's bought it.

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 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 .

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 was no job security or advancement to grow with the company. But I did learn quite a few things and got good experience.
