Calista Corporation: Serving Alaska and beyond

Calista Corporation is the parent company of more than 35 subsidiaries in the following industries: oil field support services, coil tube and work over drill rigs, military defense contracting, construction, communications, real estate, environmental and natural resource development, and information technology and media services. Calista can be found on Facebook (www.facebook.com/CalistaCorporation) and Twitter (http://twitter.com/CalistaCorp). Formed under the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act, the region Calista Corporation serves is a vast and beautiful corner of the world. Tucked between two of Southwest Alaska’s mightiest rivers – the Yukon and the Kuskokwim – this unique isolated area is the traditional home of the state’s indigenous Yup’ik, Cup’ik and Athabascan people, our Shareholders. Since Calista began a formal application program in 1994, Calista has provided more than $3.5 million in scholarships to its Shareholders and Descendants. Since inception more than $27.6 million in dividends and Elders’ Benefit Program distributions to its Shareholders. The Calista Region encompasses 57,000 square miles and is the second largest ANCSA region in land size. The land entitlement to Calista, however, is only 6.5 million acres – less than 20 percent of the land area. Approximately 75 percent of the land within the Region is owned by the Fish and Wildlife Service. Surrounded by mostly federally owned lands, the Region is about the size of New York State. It encompasses nearly 10 percent of Alaska’s land area and is comprised of 56 federally recognized tribes. There are no roads that connect it with the rest of Alaska. Because everything must be flown or barged to each community, the cost of food, fuel, transportation and energy are extraordinarily high. Calista Corporation works hard and partners with many to improve and enrich the way of life for our Shareholders and Descendants. Learn more about the Calista Corporation at...

Congratulations to Alliance members for being recognized at the 2014 Governor’s Safety and Health Conference

More than 300 Alaskans attended the 2014 Governor’s Safety and Health Conference, participating in training tracks in employer resources, youth safety, safety education, oil industry, transportation and hospitality. The conference, which is sponsored by the Alaska Safety Advisory Council, focuses on emerging safety and health issues, and advanced safety needs that are unique to Alaska. A highlight of the annual conference is recognition of Alaskans and Alaska businesses that exemplify good corporate citizenship and a commitment to the health and safety of their workers. Everett Award The Everett Award is named for “Safety Herb” Everett, the first recipient and who was the longest serving member on the council. A candidate must have worked in the safety and health field for five or more years, must be regarded by peers as a true safety professional, must have made substantial contributions or demonstrate extraordinary ability in the field of safety and health and must be an active member of the Alaska safety profession. Kirk Foster – With more than 30 years in health and safety, Foster has served as Health and Safety Manager for American Marine Services for six years. His career has taken him from the oil fields of West Africa to the ice shelves of Alaska’s Arctic. His co-workers praise his practical application of health and safety techniques blended with real world insight and cultural sensitivity. His projects succeed and workers benefit from a reduced injury/illness rate. Governor’s Safety Award of Excellence This recognition is awarded to a group that has demonstrated excellence in safety and health systems that protect employees. Companies must show there is management commitment, employee involvement and a documented system for hazard analysis and hazard reduction. Granite Construction Company is one of Alaska’s largest civil contractors and construction materials producers. The company safety program establishes accident prevention as a core value. The efforts have produced a total case incident rate 57% below the national average for construction. In 2011, Granite Construction was formally accepted as an Alaska CHASE partner by the Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development. ASRC Energy Services’ Houston Contracting Company, Inc. is the largest Alaska-based, minority owned, oil and gas service company in the state. Philosophical values require the company to develop responsibly, live according to Iñupiat values, “own” safety and protect resources. In the last three years, the company has had only one recordable injury in 600,000 work hours while working in some of the most remote and wild areas of Alaska. American Marine International operates under some of the most extreme Alaska conditions, from the arctic ice of the Chukchi and Beaufort Seas to the 30-foot tides of Cook Inlet....
