While there may be many safety service providers in the market. The majority of them only focus on particular threats.
Enter Total Safety; a company which provides an integrated suite of core safety and compliance service offerings which meets the diverse and comprehensive needs of its many different clients.
As Rickey Lindsey, vice president of operations for the Middle East, Africa & Australia of Total Safety says, “no competitor possesses Total Safety’s scale, relationships and reputation for delivering the full spectrum of safety and compliance solutions necessary to ensure comprehensive risk management globally for multiple facilities.”
Since its inception in 1994, the company has grown to provide a wide portfolio of services including air, gas, fire, training, medical, industrial hygiene and communications to meet clients’ many needs.
Extending beyond its immediate safety services, the company boasts the industry’s largest fleet of safety rental equipment. It has developed technology such as the U.S.-patented High Pressure Breathing Air Loop System; the Centralized Confined Space Monitoring System and the Air Cobra, a high-volume breathing air compressor system.
“Total Safety provides a complete offering of integrated safety services throughout the Middle East to the upstream and downstream oil and gas market,” says Lindsey.
The company offers a range of services and technical expertise through its three primary solution sets; compliance and inspection, professional and technical services and specialized safety personnel.
Within the services it provides, the company offers equipment rental and sales for everything from respiratory protection, gas detection, H2S protection and fire protection.
According to Lindsey, the company has gone eight years without a Lost Time Accident. “Safety is paramount to everything we do,” says Lindsey. “We are extremely proud of our safety record globally and believe we have a world-class organization in that regard.”
Total Safety services major oil and gas companies, NOCs, international drilling contractors and oil field service contractors on a direct basis. In the Middle East, the company is split evenly between its upstream and downstream segments.
The company’s revenue has continued to grow over the years, and Lindsey remains confident. “Over the next two years we hope to have a strong presence in the downstream business to match our upstream portfolio,” he said.
The company continues to grow in Saudi Arabia, its largest market. “We enjoy a number of strong and long-term relationships with our partners there.
