Ensuring a Healthy & Safe Work Environment

Employee 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. Our operational practices focus on improved safety performance and occupational health.

By enlisting the support of each employee, the Company has developed departmental goals aimed at encouraging all employees to lead by example in incident prevention.

Investing in our employees, 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.


Florence Copper

Florence Copper has had zero reportable incidents since the commencement of the Production Test Facility.

Gibraltar Mine

In addition, for the fifth time in seven years, Gibraltar received the prestigious John Ash Award. Presented by the BC Ministry of Mines, this award is presented to the mining operation with the lowest industry frequency rate and a minimum of one million hours worked.

This success is in large measure a reflection of the 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.
