04 Mar Why get involved in the Vision Zero Summit 2022?
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 to emerging health challenges at work, new occupational health risks unexpectedly occurred with the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020
Given the magnitude of the disruptions caused and their lasting impact in the world of work, the pandemic requires a comprehensive re-design of traditional prevention models.
The Vision Zero Summit Japan 2022 will take an innovative approach to addressing these and many other important challenges. Guided by the United Nation’s Agenda for 2030 and the Vision Zero mind-set and strategy, leading OSH experts, researchers and policy-makers as well as senior OSH managers from different industries and regions of the World will present and discuss innovative solutions to a wide range of topics critical to redefining safety, health and well-being for the New Normal.
GET INVOLVED AND CONTRIBUTE TO A NEW AND SAFER FUTURE!
