Falck Safety Services will be represented in Canada

Falck Safety Services is boosting its presence in North America even further by signing an agreement to acquire 55% of the Canadian safety training provider Survival Systems Integrated Services (”SSIS”) which will be called Falck Safety Services.


The company is located in one of Canada’s major oil hubs Halifax, Nova Scotia, and has 16 employees. Falck Safety Services in Halifax delivers training to the oil & gas, aviation and military industries. The level of safety training regulation in Canada is among the highest in the world which is in line with Falck Safety Services’ mission to deliver high quality training.


As an outstanding Canadian provider of high quality services to the offshore sector SSIS represents a strong platform for further expansion in the Canadian market.

​”Falck Safety Services see Canada as a very interesting market and we want to follow our global customers to where they need us and Canada is one such case. We look forward to working closely with the professional Canadian management to provide our clients the best service possible,” says CEO Falck Safety Services, Peter Svarrer.

The local management, Joel Carroll, President, and David Comeau, Vice President Operations, will team up with Falck Safety Services and become part of the management team of the new Canadian Falck Safety Services entity.

“This acquisition will give us the growth platform to expand our business across Canada,” says Joel Carroll.
David Comeau continues:
“The partnership will enable us to bring more safety training to the market here in Canada including Major Emergency Management and wind turbine safety.”

The acquisition is expected to be completed shortly.
