In connection with the World Day for Safety and Health at Work on 28 April 2024, the International Social Security Association (ISSA) has published an analysis of good practices in prevention, including a number of Vision Zero initiatives.

The ISSA analysis, which focusses on initiatives developed by European social security institutions, stresses that many institutions and companies have successfully implemented Vision Zero and achieved positive results in terms of reducing work-related accidents and diseases.

The following Vision Zero initiatives are analysed:

  • The Finnish Institute for Occupational Health (FIOH) for its Vision Zero Forum, composed of regional prevention networks that foster collaboration and knowledge sharing.
  • The German Social Accident Insurance Institution for the Trade and Logistics Industry (BGHW) implemented targeted prevention measures aligned with the 7 Golden Rules.
  • The German Social Accident Insurance (DGUV) collaborated with the Labour & Human Resource Department of the Government of Punjab, Pakistan and the German Corporation for International Cooperation (GIZ), to establish a prevention culture strategy in the Punjab.
  • The Accident Insurance Association of Luxembourg (AAA) developed with partners a national Vision Zero strategy to reduce work-related accidents and occupational diseases as well as commuting accidents.
  • The Polish Agricultural Social Insurance Fund (KRUS) organized a short-film competition to promote safety education among young people in agriculture, integrating Vision Zero principles into creative narratives.

The article highlights the 7 Golden Rules of Vision Zero, which are simple-to-use guidelines for anyone wanting to implement the Vision Zero strategy. While some of the initiatives started before the 7 Golden Rules were developed, they are all aligned with similar objectives.
