On 8 June 2022 the Agricultural Social Insurance Fund (Kasa Rolniczego Ubezpieczenia Społecznego – KRUS) inaugurated the 4th National Competition for Young People "My Vision Zero", which this year will be carried out under the slogan Safety, Health and Wellbeing of a Family on the Farm.
The competition is held within the framework of the international Vision Zero strategy, whose main objective is to eliminate occupational accidents and diseases, which is linked to the creation of better working conditions and improvement of farmers' health.
The Superintendency of Occupational Risks (Superintendencia de Riesgos del Trabajo – SRT) has been one of the main drivers for Vision Zero in Argentina. The Superintendency is a member organisation of the International Social Security Association (ISSA).
The following activities have been carried out:
The German Association for Safety, Health and Environmental Protection at Work (Verband für Sicherheit, Gesundheit und Umweltschutz bei der Arbeit – VDSI) has adopted a position paper which recognises that Vison Zero is a path towards safe and healthy work. The VDSI is Germany's largest professional association for safety, health and environmental protection and has over 5,600 members.
The International Lime Association (ILA) is a member of the International Section of the ISSA on Prevention in the Mining Industry.
In an effort to establish a pro-active Prevention Culture and involve all leaders and all workers alike, the ILA has issued a Health and Safety Award in three categories: Technology, Prevention Culture and Health Prevention and a special Recognition for efforts to address New Risks.
