Underwriters Labs Acquires PureSafety

Both companies announced the acquisition Dec. 6 but did not disclose the terms.

UL, otherwise known as Underwriters Laboratories, announced Dec. 6 that it has acquired PureSafety, a Franklin, Tenn.-based provider of safety and health software solutions. PureSafety was founded in 1999 and has more than 1,500 customers relying on it to optimize overall business performance with a suite of state-of-the-art software applications.

"The acquisition of PureSafety is an important and logical step in our strategy to help companies create healthier and safer work environments," said Keith Williams, president and CEO of Northbrook, Ill.-based UL. "UL has a century long history of protecting consumers, and PureSafety allows us to expand that legacy into the workplace."

PureSafety's safety training courses, safety management, employee health, and clinic management solutions are now part of UL's service capabilities. "This is an exciting partnership and opportunity that will enable us to continue our mission in combination with the most recognized safety company in the world," said Bill Grana, president and CEO of PureSafety. "Combining UL's vast resources, safety expertise, and global operations with our OH&S market understanding, technology platform, and world-class software solutions will enable us to serve customers more effectively than ever before."

"PureSafety's sophisticated OH&S training, reporting, and monitoring software will give our valued customers the tools they need to convert employee health and safety performance into meaningful business improvement," said Patrick Boyle, president of UL University. "We plan to extend PureSafety's core capabilities into new industries and geographies aligned with UL's global business strategy."

Grana and the rest of PureSafety's leadership team will continue to manage PureSafety's operations.
