At Callanan Industries, we have a dedicated team of experts who are responsible for ensuring the health and safety of our employees, customers, vendors, and any other group or community we come into contact with. Applying world-class training, expectations, and operational tools, Callanan's number one focus has been and always will be to advise and provide safety, health and wellness—extending beyond our walls and into the homes of our Callanan families. Our safety pledge states: “When I SEE something, I will STOP and DO something,” expanding on the fact that safety needs to be a lifestyle, not a job requirement. Come join us on this endeavor, and let's make safety our family business for the future ahead; today, tomorrow and here on.

Safety Training

Training is essential to our safety initiatives. We recognize that we have a responsibility to provide all employees with a workplace that is free from all recognizable hazards that have the potential to cause serious harm. Training, educating and providing protection to our employees from such hazards is extremely vital to this company.
All Callanan Operation's employees receive comprehensive safety training when they join our team and continuously throughout their career with us. Training includes our own safety training, along with MSHA and OSHA courses. Operations employees are provided with all of the necessary safety equipment at no expense; this includes eye and face protection, hearing protection, respiratory protection, feet and fall protection, and any other form of protection as necessary.

Best Practice

The sharing of best practices is a key component that enables us to maintain our outstanding safety record. Callanan is a key participant in the Oldcastle Materials Safety Best Practice Group, organized by our parent company, Oldcastle. We recognize that sharing successes, failures, and experiences capitalizes on the synergies between companies to benefit the organization as a whole. As we benchmark each other and our industry peers, we have found that Callanan and Oldcastle Materials compare very favorably and could often be considered industry leaders.

Employee Driven Safety Culture

Over the years, Callanan has transitioned from a management driven safety culture to an employee driven safety culture. We understand that the best practice only goes so far in the real world – to fully understand what it takes to work safely, it takes the full engagement of the men and women who are performing the work on a daily basis. Not only have our employees become fully engaged in safety on the jobsite, but they have taken that mindset home to their family and friends.

Risk Tolerance

What is risk tolerance? Risk tolerance is an individual's or group's decision to accept a certain level of risk. There are three components to RISK – Hazard recognition, the worker's understanding of why a certain situation or activity in the workplace is a hazard, and, finally, risk tolerance. For more information, please view the below videos about risk tolerance that have been created by the safety teams of Old Castle Materials. Remember, our number ONE guiding principle is “Let's make safety our family business.”
