This webinar is jointly organized by the International Social Security Association (ISSA) and the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), and it is hosted by IOSH.
Vision Zero is based on the belief that all accidents, diseases and harm at work are preventable and provides organizations and businesses with a proactive approach to promoting a prevention culture in workplaces.
Employers have a responsibility to keep their workers safe and healthy, and by embedding and training the principles of Vision Zero, organizations have the chance to create workplaces that do just that.
The principles of Vision Zero are flexible and can be used in all types of workplaces, no matter where you work or what you do.
There is a wealth of Vision Zero guides available free of charge.
However, sometimes organizations and businesses require expert advice. Therefore, IOSH provides Accredited Vision Zero training in partnership with the ISSA, to help implement a Vison Zero strategy as part of ongoing occupational safety and health training efforts.
Join this ISSA-IOSH webinar with leading experts to hear how implementing and training on the Vision Zero principles can make a great positive impact in workplaces and to businesses.
