COVID-19: Our Five Pillar Response Approach

COVID-19: Our Five Pillar Response Approach

The global health crisis posed by COVID-19 is unlike anything previously faced by companies, by families, and by communities.

Following the most up-to-date direction from governments and public health authorities, Teck developed and implemented a five-pillar response approach to prevent transmission, provide support to employees and local communities, and maintain operations to the extent possible.


We implemented extensive preventative measures across our offices and operations in order to safeguard the health of our employees, while continuing to operate safely. Read about measures in places in Resources to Help Limit the Spread.

Employee Support

We implemented new and expanded services to help our people through the challenges created by COVID-19, including access to health and wellness support programs.

Communities & Public Health

We are supporting critical social initiatives and increased healthcare capacity in areas where Teck operates and internationally through the $20 million COVID-19 support fund.

Business Continuity

We worked to maintain production and sales to the extent possible in the short term, supporting continued employment and economic activity.


We work to provide regular timely communication across our company, early and often, as new information presents itself and to address employee questions.
