Safety

Callidus creates safe working environments for all employees and communities influenced by our work. The breadth of our activities and the inherent risks of engineering challenges us to ensure that no-one is injured as a result of our operations.

We are acutely aware that the quality of our products determines the safety of our client’s operations. An unwavering focus on sound engineering is crucial to everything we do.

Callidus operates in accordance with a comprehensive occupational health and safety system and is accredited to AS/NZS 4801:2001

Our products are processed and supplied in accordance with our Quality Management system. Developed to be compliant with ISO 9001, it has been accredited to ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management standard, or its previous equivalents since 1998.

Community

Callidus places great importance on corporate social responsibility and associated social investment activities within the communities in which we work. Callidus social activities address local needs while encouraging employees to play an active role in their communities. Employees currently support these initiatives and are encouraged to participate through provision of Callidus support both financially and through organisation of activities, designated social coordinators at all locations, opportunities and sponsorships. A recent Achielles audit awarded us 88% for corporate social responsibilty
