Health and Safety

Health and Safety

Health and 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.

Health and Safety and Our Sustainability Strategy

Health and safety is one of our eight strategic themes along with: responsible production, climate change, our people, water, tailings management, communities and Indigenous Peoples, and biodiversity and reclamation. Our sustainability strategy has long-term strategic priorities and shorter-term sustainability goals.

Strategic Priority:

Eliminate fatalities, serious injuries and occupational disease


  • Contribute to the elimination of fatalities and serious injuries through significantly enhanced critical control verification for fatal hazards.
  • By 2025, contribute to the elimination of occupational disease by implementing new technologies in real-time exposure monitoring to improve exposure controls for dust and welding fumes.
