2019 CHAIR Leadership Award Recipient
Teck Resources Ltd.
Teck Resources has demonstrated outstanding leadership through Copper & Health program as well as the promotion and awareness of ‘engineered infection reduction’ technologies, making Canadian patients safer in our healthcare facilities. Furthermore, Teck has funded many important research initiatives in several Canadian hospitals that will demonstrate the durability of different copper alloys. This critical research will help guide healthcare decision-makers in Canada and around the world.
Teck has also supported the Canadian Standards Association through the development of a National Standard on Cleaning & Disinfection, which includes a ground-breaking recommendation to include copper surfaces in Canadian healthcare facilities. When this standard is distributed in 2020, Canadian healthcare facilities will become safer for all Canadians.
