The Board and management team at Calidus build an environment and culture to support the health and wellbeing of all our employees and contractors through visible and effective leadership.
Safety and health of our people is the most important of our core values at Calidus.
Safety is embedded in everything we do at Calidus, and we expect our employees and contractors to always ensure their own safety and that of their colleagues. We acknowledge that a risk-based approach to managing hazards, incorporating regular reviews and audits of our principal risks and controls is essential to providing a safe and productive workplace for our employees and contractors.
We will ensure that all employees and contractors have the competency and skills required to work safely and are provided with appropriate tools and information to enable work to be conducted safely and productively.
Environmental stewardship is embedded in our operational thinking and Calidus is committed to continually improve its environmental and sustainability performance.

We recognise that our long-term success depends on our ability to build relationships with business partners, host communities and other stakeholders and maintain a social licence to operate. We engage regularly, openly and honestly with our host communities and stakeholders, and take their views and concerns into account in our decision-making.
