Our reputation may have forged in the fires of Kuwait following the Gulf War, but we have been providing elite well control services around the globe since 1956.
Safety Boss employs the best technology, equipment and people to meet the rigorous demands of each emergency.
Our team consists of seasoned professionals who have successfully fought oil well fires, blowouts, pipeline ruptures and processing facility fires throughout North America, Southeast Asia and the Middle East. Let us put our legendary experience to work for you.
Founded in 1956 by K.J. "Smokey" Miller, Safety Boss has grown from a one-truck fire company to a fleet of emergency equipment capable of controlling fires and blowouts worldwide. The company's roots are deep in Alberta's oil patch but our international reputation was forged in the fires of Kuwait following the 1991 Gulf War.
One of the oldest oilfield firefighting companies in the world, Safety Boss has pioneered the design and construction of the highly mobile "Smokey" firefighting systems. We have designed much of our own blowout control equipment, demolition tools, fire shielding equipment, asbestos entry suits, hoisting and rigging equipment, sparkless brass tools, metal cutting saws, chemical suits, high pressure water jet cutters and other specialty items needed to gain control in these dangerous situations.
Today, Safety Boss is headed by Mike Miller, son of the company's founder, who has been in charge of Safety Boss's services since 1979. Following Safety Boss's record-breaking performance in Kuwait, Mike focused on international services until returning to Canada and his Alberta roots in 1999.
