Accidents at work and occupational diseases are neither predetermined nor unavoidable, they always have causes. While there is no way to completely eliminate accidents, there are certain plans, preparations, and actions that can be taken to reduce them.

The International Vision Zero Conference intends to inculcate a strong prevention culture, whereby work-related accidents, harm, and occupational diseases are eliminated and prevented through the transformation approach that integrates the three dimensions of Safety Health and Well-being at all levels of work.

The Conference has adopted the flexibility concept that adjusts to specific Safety, Health and Well-being beneficial to any workplace, enterprise or industry in all regions of the world, whereby new trends, procedures and experiences would be presented.


The International Vision Zero Conference 2020 has been designed to bring together a wide spectrum of stakeholders for a two days mind stimulating sessions on issues that bother on Safety, Health and Wellbeing of employees and employers in Construction sector and related industries.

Issues abound within these sectors and the need to bring global experts together for intense discussions capable of walking us from problems into solutions became a huge priority.

As you may already be aware of from the OSHA report, the leading causes of private sector worker death (excluding highway collision) in the construction industry were falls. Other reports say 1 in 10 construction workers get injured annually. Considering the number of workers and categories of people employed in the construction and related sectors as Mining, Gas, Electricity, Transportation, Information, Water and others, the need to plan a conference that speaks to their needs became necessary in addressing some of those challenges.
