MINOSH / ISSA Mining WEBINAR No.5 and No.6

“Beyond Compliance towards a Preventive Culture by VISION ZERO – a Global Strategy for Safety, Health and Wellbeing”

Organized by: ICOH Scientific Committee on Mining Occupational Safety and Health in partnership with the International Social Security Association (ISSA)

Topics: The Mining Occupational Safety and Health (MINOSH) of the International Commission on Occupational Health , together with the International Social Security Association (ISSA), brings to you another innovative two-part webinar on VISION ZER0 at the workplace. Vision Zero means aiming for zero accidents and zero illnesses in the workplace.

Occupational accidents and work-related diseases are known to be among the leading causes of illnesses, disabilities and deaths worldwide. It has been proven as well to lead to significant economic losses. Every day, more than 7,500 people die due to unsafe and unhealthy working conditions; and the global economic loss is estimated at 4% of global gross domestic product (GDP). In the mining sector, the fatality rate is 8 times higher.

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) addresses this by calling for "economic growth based on decent work" (SDG 8) and "good health and well-being" (SDG 3) at work.

Against this backdrop, the International Social Security Association (ISSA) proposes a new prevention strategy: VISION ZERO, developed and first introduced by the ISSA Mining Section. This webinar will give a comprehensive understanding of VISION ZERO, it´s 7 Golden Rules, the available tools and best practices from industry across the globe.
