Health & Safety

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.

Our Health and Safety Policy outlines our commitment to providing leadership and resources for embedding core values of health and safety across our company. Health and safety guidelines are also included within our Code of Sustainable Conduct, Expectations for Suppliers and Contractors, Charter of Corporate Responsibility and Code of Ethics.

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.
