  • Excavations greater than 1.5m deep and trench protection

  • Working in and around Confined Spaces

Our management system includes safe systems of work for controlling these high risk activities and Califam have an extensive pool of safety equipment to mitigate these risks in accordance with regulations.

We conduct regular internal HSEQ auditing across our projects to ensure works are being conducted in accordance with SWMS controls and we are regularly analysing defect and incident data to look for ways to improve and reduce risk in our operations.
