Vision Zero Info Kit for workplaces published soon!

Safety is created every day, together. As a part of the Global OSH Coalition launch we will publish a free online Vision Zero Info Kit for workplaces. The aim of the material is to get participants from all levels of organization thinking about occupational safety: What does Vision Zero mean and how can each of us promote it at the workplace? At the end of the 15 minutes info kit, participants make their own safety pledge and put it into practice. More information coming soon!
