Coal COVID-19 Response

COVID-19 Response – Updated January 12, 2021

To help safeguard the health and safety of our people and communities, Teck has implemented enhanced COVID-19 response protocols and preventative measures at our steelmaking coal operations. These build on the existing protocols and measures already in place and include:

Response Protocols and Preventative Measures

  • Mandatory use of C95, KN95, or N95 respirators in indoor settings and workspaces for all employees, contractors and visitors

  • Implementing enhanced and increased screening of all individuals arriving at site to reflect current provincial health restrictions

  • Temporarily reducing the workforce at the Active Water Treatment facility construction site

  • Reduced occupancy of the Elk Valley Lodge contractor housing facility

  • Implementing proactive self-tracking of interactions and close contacts by all employees and contractors

  • An on-site review of Fording River Operations and the water treatment facility construction site conducted last week by Interior Health confirmed Teck is taking the correct steps to manage transmission of COVID-19
