Health and Safety

Health and safety has always been a high level commitment for Taseko, Gibraltar, and Florence Copper management.

The health, safety, and well-being of our employees, contractors and their families is a priority for the Company, which stems from our commitment towards operational practices that result in continuous improved efficiencies, safety performance and occupational health.

By enlisting the support of each employee the Company has developed departmental goals which are aimed at encouraging employees at all levels to take a leadership role in incident prevention. Investing in our employees, and specifically their training, gives each individual the confidence to be a leader in looking out not only for their own safety but the safety of their coworkers.

Milestones

Florence Copper

Florence Copper has had zero reportable incidents since the property was acquired.

Gibraltar Mine

On February 27, 2017 the Province of British Columbia Ministry of Energy and Mines awarded Gibraltar with the John Ash award at the 55th Annual Mine Safety Awards held in Victoria, BC, for the third year in a row. This prestigious award goes to the mining operation in British Columbia that has worked at least one million hours during the year with the lowest injury-frequency rate.

This success is in large measure a reflection of the skill and dedication of our employees to not only operational excellence but also to the well-being of their fellow workers. Safety is the top priority at Taseko and we take great care to ensure safety is the first consideration in all decisions and actions we take.
