Vision Zero at Work: Towards a More Sustainable and Resilient Future​

Vision Zero represents a commitment to the continuous development of safety, health, and well-being at work. It encompasses effective measures to prevent work-related accidents and diseases, as well as innovative practices that promote safety.

Considering the numerous challenges faced in today's working environment, it is essential for us to envision how we can collectively contribute to a more sustainable and resilient future at work.
