Bernd Treichel – Vision Zero Summit 2019
Vision Zero – from Vision to Strategy
This presentation tells the story of the beginnings of the ISSA’s Vision Zero Campaign, launched at the World Congress on Safety and Health at Work in Singapore in 2017 and how it has been developed into a strategic tool that is used by policy makers and companies to improve safety, health and wellbeing. The achievement of several milestones have helped establish Vision Zero as a globally know prevention strategy and has inspired many actors to launch their own Vision Zero initiatives. The presentation will also showcase how Vision Zero supports other major international OSH programmes and Conventions, such as the Global Alliance for OSH and International Labour Standards.

He is member of the International Organizing Committee of the World Congress on Safety and Health at Work and manages Vision Zero (www.visionzero.global) at the ISSA.
