Rural Alberta is not the ideal setting for getting lost or in trouble alone—yet that is exactly where many Canadians work, particularly in oil and gas industries.
And this is just one example—in North America, there are an average of 6,200 workplace fatalities and more than one million injuries annually.
Field Safe Solutions was founded in Calgary in 2014 to solve this problem using technology.
The Alberta firm’s tech monitors journeys, tracks tasks, and ensures regulatory compliance—all combining to improve corporate decision making. Software integrates with platform such as Apple, Android, and Windows operating systems on smartphones and tablets.
The company’s cloud-based digital health and safety platform has innovation at its core.
“We knew that innovation would drive the evolution of our solution and our company,” stated CEO Cameron Barrett in September. “It’s that innovation that sets us apart.”
Barrett, who joined the company in 2018, is a firm believer in the integration of software technology into managing field and worker safety.
According to the executive, Field Safe solutions don’t just protect lives—they also offer smarter workflows to connect workers and save clients time.
This focus on innovation and worker safety has spurred tremendous growth for the firm.
Most recently, Field Safe Solutions was recognized by the Financial Times (for the second consecutive year) in their list of “The Americas’ Fastest Growing Companies,” which is composed of enterprises that contribute heavily to economic growth.
“To be included on this respected list for a second consecutive year illustrates how Field Safe’s constant innovation makes us the market leader in health and safety software,” stated Barrett recently.
“Our easy-to-use platform helps save time, save money, and ultimately save lives worldwide,” he added.
Statista’s analysis of Field Safe’s impressive 1,690% growth rate led to the company moving up the list this year, ranking 38 out of 500.
Diving deeper, Field Safe was among the Top 10 Software companies on the list—a particularly cutthroat category, as always.
And within Canada, the company ranked fifth.
