Your proposal may be a practical example from your workplace or a project, or research findings from your latest scientific work. We welcome a broad range of abstracts. Whether you are a new or experienced OSH/EHS practitioner, manager, HR expert, researcher, trainer, insurance company representative, labor inspector, policy maker etc. we would love to hear from you!

Your proposal for presentation is suggested to be related to some of the Vision Zero Summit themes, but may also be of some other viewpoint on Vision Zero for occupational safety and health. Check out the call topics here.
