Safety. Health. Wellbeing.

Vision Zero is based on the belief that all accidents, diseases and harm at work are preventable and on the commitment of Vision Zero Companies and Partners to promote the three core values of this campaign: Safety.Health.Wellbeing. Importantly the Vision Zero approach is flexible. One can focus on health, on safety or on well-being issues depending on what is most relevant. With this flexibility Vision Zero is of benefit for all, for governments and health and safety organizations in any part of the world and for companies of any industry and any scale. The roadmap towards Vision Zero is formed by “Seven Golden Rules” based on successful, practical management concepts.

How to reach vision Zero: 7 Golden Rules

The seven Golden Rules provide a proactive approach to promoting a prevention culture in the workplace. They introduce practical steps to take to identify areas needing improvement and then concrete suggestions about how to put the rules into practice.

Profile of the month

“I salute the Vision Zero campaign, which proposes concrete, adaptable and flexible solutions. The question of reducing professional risks through an ambitious prevention policy that takes into account the well-being of workers must be approached through the development strategy of each institution and company. Management must engage but success can only be guaranteed through the involvement of all workers. On this point, Vision Zero comes to accompany the social security institutions in their prevention strategy.”

How to reach vision Zero

Improving safety and health in the enterprise does not necessarily mean increasing spending. More important is that management acts with awareness, leads consistently and builds a climate of trust and open communication at every level in the company. Implementing the Vision Zero prevention strategy requires the active contribution and participation of many different actors at company level.

One thing is clear: the success or failure of implementing the Vision Zero strategy will ultimately be determined by dedicated employers and executives, motivated managers and vigilant employees.
