This week, two Vision Zero events were organized in Copenhagen, Denmark, one by the National Research Centre for the Working Environment (NRCWE) and one in relation to a meeting organised by the pharmaceutical company Novo Nordisk.
The Vision Zero campaign for safety, health and wellbeing at work continues to grow. After recent launches in Africa and North America, over 1950 companies, organizations and occupational safety and health trainers have signed up to the campaign.
In response to the Vision Zero campaign’s call for support of the ILO’s World Day for Safety and Health (SafeDay) on 28 April 2018, the Workplace Safety and Health Council (WSHC) of Singapore got together with the Institute of Technical Education (ITE) and organised a Safe Youth Day. In addition, a SafeJam event was organised by the Singapore WSH Youth Champions.
The World Day for Safety and Health at Work, or SafeDay, takes place on 28 April. On this occasion, the ILO has launched the campaign ‘Generation Safe and Healthy’. The Vision Zero community is encouraged to support the efforts to ensure safe and healthy working conditions for young people.
