After 20 years of working with clients involved in high risk operations around the globe, Kris Callen founded The Callen Group in April of 2017 in order to focus solely on developing and promoting high performing operational cultures that lead to safe and efficient operations.
“It isn’t about safety vs. operations, but an effective high-performance culture that leads to safe and efficient operations” says owner Kris Callen. Over the years, Kris has developed a deeply held personal philosophy when it comes to safe and efficient operations. “Keep it real, keep it simple and keep it personal” he always says. Kris prides himself on his ability to connect deeply with front line supervisors and workers while demonstrating that operational safety and efficiency are the natural byproducts of this philosophy. In other words, by keeping safety real, simple and personal, front line supervisors and workers are better able to internalize the proper attitudes and beliefs that drive a strong safety culture where safety and efficiency go hand in hand. It becomes a symbiotic relationship that drives safe and efficient operations, whereas other “so called” safety cultures often fail to deliver on the operational efficiency aspect.
We work to develop not only technical aspects of a safety system, but also the philosophy behind it” says Callen. This provides the operational team with a greater understanding and confidence in the safety tools and systems that are intended to eliminate incidents and injuries. They not only know precisely how to use the tools for maximum worker protection, but they understand the practical daily application that makes for safe, efficient operations.
