HSE enters into safety and services alliance with TEAM Industrial

    CALGARY, Nov. 30 /CNW/ - HSE Integrated Ltd. ("HSE" or the "Company")
announces that it entered into an alliance agreement effective December 1,
2007 with the Canadian division of TEAM Industrial Services Inc. ("TEAM") of
Houston, Texas. The purpose of the alliance is for both companies to focus on
their core services to better serve their clients and to expand their
respective businesses.
    TEAM is a leading international supplier of specialized industrial
repair, inspection and maintenance services for plants, manufacturing and
processing facilities. The purpose of TEAM's integrated product suite is to
allow industrial operators to ensure their facilities are operating
effectively and safely with minimal downtime. Headquartered in Houston, TEAM
has operations all over the world, including Canada. The Canadian head office
is in Edmonton, Alberta. For further information visit TEAM's website at
    HSE is Canada's only national supplier of an integrated suite of health,
safety and environment services for the same client base as that served by
TEAM. HSE's mission is to assist industrial operators and their supporting
contractors to cost-effectively protect workers, assets and the community. For
further information visit HSE's website at www.hseintegrated.com.
    To facilitate the alliance, TEAM will take over HSE's API Services
division effective December 1. Based in Brooks, Alberta, this six-person group
specializes in the project management of large volume oil storage tank
inspection, cleaning and repair. These employees will join TEAM where they
will be integrated into TEAM's existing service group which already offers
this service. TEAM will open a service centre for this group in Brooks
effective December 1.
    HSE does not believe the foregoing will be material to the Company's
financial performance.
    David Yager, Chairman and CEO of HSE, had the following comments on the
alliance with TEAM.
    "When HSE purchased Mobile Safety of Brooks in July, 2004 this group was
included in the transaction. They do valuable, safety-intensive work, and have
made a contribution towards growing the Industrial side of our business. Rick
Jondreau, the manager, and his team have done a great job. But to take it to
the next level they really need the type of support that TEAM can better
provide than HSE. Several related services are already provided by TEAM and we
work together on many projects.
    Therefore, HSE and TEAM have entered into an alliance that will provide
focus and growth for both organizations. This arrangement will expand TEAM's
business and HSE's, making it a win-win deal. I am confident that our clients
will receive the same level of outstanding service that Rick Jondreau and his
group have consistently delivered."

    HSE is Canada's only national supplier of integrated industrial Health,
Safety and Environmental services. From its head office in Calgary, Alberta
HSE serves its clients from field service locations in Alberta, British
Columbia, Saskatchewan, Ontario, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Michigan. HSE
trades on the TSX under the symbol "HSL".
