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.
