Breakout Session C – Organized by ISSA: Vision Zero in Motion: Presenting the new Vision Zero Training programme and the new Vision Zero Proactive Leading Indicators

Launched at the last World Congress three years ago, Vision Zero has found a broad acceptance in the world of industry, organisations and occupational health and safety professionals. What started as a campaign has gradually become part of a prevention culture and a sound strategy to improve prevention performance beyond compliance. Following the demands of the occupational safety and health community, we have been working with businesses, social security institutions, researchers and professional training providers to take Vision Zero to the next level.

In this session the International Social Security Association will present to you
- The new Vision Zero Training Programme - a newly developed Vision Zero training course for companies, to be delivered by accredited Vision Zero trainers
- The new Vision Zero Proactive Leading Indicators – a guide to measure and manage safety, health and wellbeing
- Exciting experiences and Vision Zero success stories from the occupational safety and health community
