Safety is a core value and strategic priority at Teck; nothing is more important than the health and safety of our people. We recognize our responsibility to identify and mitigate health and safety risks, and we believe it is possible for our people to work without serious injuries and occupational diseases.
We have a three-pillar approach within our current health and safety strategy – building a positive culture of safety, identifying and effectively controlling our high-potential risks, and enhancing our prevention of occupational disease. These three areas drive continual improvement and support our vision of everyone going home safe and healthy every day. We continuously seek to strengthen and achieve a balance between the cultural and technical aspects of our health and safety program, and ensure that these two aspects are complementary with one another.
Our company-wide Health and Wellness strategy focuses on improving physical and mental well-being of our employees. Programs under this strategy include mental health campaigns, flu clinics and site-specific health and wellness workshops and fitness facilities.
