SYM7 (Formerly S25) - The impact of digitalisation on OSH in global transportation and logistics - Possibilities for the success of the Vision Zero strategy

Every year the lives of approximately 1.25 million people are cut short as a result of a road traffic crash. Between 20 and 50 million more people suffer non-fatal injuries, with many incurring a disability as a result of their injury. This symposium will look to technological developments and to promising approaches to strengthening a culture of prevention for the way forward to Vision Zero.
