Hecla’s Responsible Actions

2020 Safety & Health Performance

Hecla’s focus on safety and behavior has steadily improved our safety records every year over the past eight years. In 2012, we instituted our Safety & Health Management System, and since that time, we became the first U.S. and Internationally certified sites under the National Mining Association’s CORESafety program, have had no mine employee fatalities, and have steadily reduced our AIFR year after year by 80%. In 2020, we reduced our AIFR by 24% – far exceeding our 5% reduction goal.
