Hecla’s Responsible Actions

Innovation Increases Mine Safety

Hecla has invested in innovative technology to help protect our people and reduce our environmental impact. The health and safety of our people is always our highest priority, and technology allows us to take “hands off the steel,” which mitigates risk to workers and improves operational efficiency. This strong safety culture led to our lowest company-wide All-Injury Frequency Rate (AIFR) in our history in 2019. Our 2019 AIFR was 33 percent below the national average and 70 percent lower than it was in 2014.
