Hecla’s Responsible Actions / Safety

Safety in the Age of Covid-19

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.

Mitigating Potential Risk

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.

A Commitment to Our People

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.

Safety: Educate Others

Hecla’s Corporate Director of Safety and Health, Michael Wegleitner, brings the safety message home and to nearby schools.

Safety: Take it Home

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.

The Safest Mines in America

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.
