Safety has always been a part of the Hecla culture, and during the pandemic, we have made meaningful adjustments to ensure our employees and communities remain safe and healthy.
Hecla’s $2 million dollar investment to install a backup power system at the Lucky Friday mine in Idaho was instrumental in safely evacuating all of our miners during the recent monstrous windstorm.
We know that instilling safety awareness behavior is fundamental to making our workplace as safe as possible, which is why Hecla invests in training, technology, and workforce development programs that focus on safety first.
Hecla has invested in innovative technology to help protect our people and reduce our environmental impact.
Hecla’s recent “SAFETY: Take It Home” campaign contest was shared by both the National Mining Association (NMA) and CORESafety.
Hecla’s goal is to bring every worker and every contractor home safe, every shift, every day.
Hecla’s Corporate Director of Safety and Health, Michael Wegleitner, brings the safety message home and to nearby schools.
Hecla geologist Jonathan Moore was working in his yard with his two young children. He regularly demonstrates to them how Hecla teaches him to stay safe.
Our Lucky Friday Mine was recently named a 2018 Sentinels of Safety award winner by the National Mining Association (NMA) for its stellar safety record.
