Vision Zero of work-related deaths webinar
Every year, there are more than 3 million accidents at work, of which 4.000 are fatal, and 120.000 workers die every year of work-related illnesses. It´s time for an EU ‘vision zero’ on fatal occupational accidents.
On 12th October, the members of the European Parliament Agnes Jongerius, Marianne Vind, and Johan Danielsson are hosting a webinar on Vision Zero of work-related deaths. Built around the new EU’s Strategic Framework for Health and Safety 2021-2027, the event aims to discuss concrete initiatives needed to achieve the zero work-related deaths goal by 2030.
Commissioner for Jobs and Social Rights, Nicolas Schmit, will give a keynote speech and share his opinion on reaching this goal. All participants are invited to take the floor.
