Every minute someone dies from work-related cancer. Vision Zero commits to help reduce the burden of occupational cancer on humanity worldwide.
The International Labour Conference (ILC) is a yearly gathering of governments, employers and worker representatives from across the world, organized by the International Labour Organization in Geneva. This year, the Vision Zero campaign drew a lot attention at one of the stands.
In just 9 months, over 2000 companies, organizations and occupational safety and health (OSH) trainers from across the world have joined the Vision Zero campaign. There is a good spread across all the four regions, being Africa, the Americas, Asia and the Pacific and Europe.

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.
