The story behind Real Safety

The beginning:

In 2007, Torben Farup, who is the owner and founder of Real Safety, came up with the idea to increase safety for people working offshore in the oil and gas industry. Torben wanted to focus on preventing trip, slip and fall incidents, as these were among the most common reasons for accidents in the industry.

Torben contacted Réal Marine in Stavanger and set up Real Safety and were quickly very successful. Not only were the solutions quickly recognised within the industry for reducing accidents, but so was their innovative, easy and practical approach.

Today, Real Safety’s solutions are industry ‘best practice’ and an integrated part of new designs and solutions when upgrading working environments. A real ground-breaking moment came in 2017, when Real Safety’s Escape Route Marking solution won the international award in the Offshore Category. It won for being the most innovative and cost reducing safety product for the offshore industry.

Working with clients

Torben Farup comes from a very diverse background, but dealing with people has always been a constant companion throughout his working life. 

Torben comments: “For me, it’s not the size or scope of the project that’s most important – it’s actually working collaboratively with clients and my team to find solutions. Over the years, it has resulted in quite a few interesting meetings, challenges and ultimately, solutions. I’m passionate about safety. I had a serious fall accident in 2007, and I wouldn’t wish that experience on anyone!”.
