The Challenges

The Vision Zero Summit Japan 2022 takes place on a challenging background

  • Every year 2.8 million people lose their lives, mainly due to work related health risks, and 4 % of global GDP is lost due to poor working conditions.
  • Globalisation is accelerating and the world of work is changing rapidly as a result of the 4th industrial revolution.
  • The disruptive nature of digitalisation dramatically affects the way we work and live and brings about both risks and opportunities for safety, health and well-being at work.
  • In addition new occupational health risks unexpectedly occurred with the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020 requesting immediate preventive measures to prevent infection in particular for front-line personnel
  • Given the magnitude of the disruptions caused and their lasting impact in the world of work the pandemic requires a re-design of traditional prevention models for the New Normal

The Vision Zero Summit Japan 2022 will take an innovative approach to addressing these and many other exciting challenges. It will be guided by the United Nation’s Agenda 2030 and its 17 Sustainable Developments Goals on the one hand, and the Vision Zero mind-set and strategy on the other.

Two main axes provide the dynamics of the Summit:

  • The first axis consists of thought leaders from the Global Coalition, distinguished OSH experts, researchers and policy-makers as well as senior OSH managers from different industries and regions of the World.
  • The other axis is represented by no less than 16 technical sessions suggesting innovative solutions to a wide range of topics critical to redefining safety, health and well-being for the New Normal.
