The theme of this year's Summit is "Redefining Safety, Health and Well-being for the New Normal ". The event will feature a virtual exhibition and speeches from workplaces and expert organizations.
“The two-year pandemic period has had a global impact on occupational health, safety and well-being. The speeches at the conference are sure to reflect on what the ‘new normal’ will look like,” says Tommi Alanko, Director of the Occupational Safety Unit at the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health.
The Summit will enhance understanding of Vision Zero
The Finnish Institute of Occupational Health leads an international working group tasked with helping in the implementation of Vision Zero at workplaces globally.
”The conference will present a model developed by the working group, which will showcase how Vision Zero has been implemented in companies and other organizations. The idea is to take advantage of the lessons learned and experiences gained across different countries,” explains Tommi Alanko.
From the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health, Director General Antti Koivula, Research Professor Anna-Maria Teperi and Senior Specialist Riikka Ruotsala will also speak at the conference.
Vision Zero has spread all over the world
Vision Zero refers to the comprehensive development of occupational health, safety and well-being. A key objective of the conference is to raise awareness of Vision Zero. This year, Japan will host the second-ever Vision Zero Summit. The first Vision Zero Summit was organized in Helsinki in 2019.
