Founded in 1978 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, Pason first specialized in designing remote drilling chokes for the Canadian land-based drilling market, and employed just five people. Since then, our strategic focus on unique, proprietary solutions and industry-best standard of care has helped us become a global industry leader, and now we’re expanding offshore.

Safety is of primary importance in the daily operation of Pason. It is our policy that all company employees conduct themselves in a manner that protects the health and safety of our employees, customers, and the environment.

Pason’s safety goal is to prevent all injuries. To achieve this, we must educate all employees about the importance of health, safety, and the environment.

We believe that a safe working environment has certain indispensable ingredients: management commitment, knowledgeable training personnel, and a conscientious work force, where each individual is dedicated to the principle that accident prevention is an essential part of the planning and efficient execution of every assignment.

It is the obligation of Pason to make you aware of all the known hazards that you may face in the course of your job. If you do not feel that you have been properly informed, it is your responsibility to inform your supervisor of your concerns.

Pason will comply with all Government regulations and client rules at all times.
