VISION ZERO [the national strategy in Luxembourg]
Sicherheits- & Notfall Management
The film starts with showing us how the Luxembourgish population is concerned about labour accidents at work (figures of labour accidents of the year 2014, for example 324 of severe accidents and 15 of fatal accidents in the year 2014 in Luxembourg). Afterwards we are challenged to take actions (let's say yes to the prevention of hazards and to the responsibility of everybody). Information, prevention, training are the keys to adopt the new national strategy VISION ZERO [see information in the rubric "Background"]. The film ends with showing the corporate identity VISION ZERO.

Everybody is concerned about labour accidents.
It's time for mind change, let's go together towards the national strategy VISION ZERO. Let's establish a culture of prevention in companies.
In march 2016, a national Charta “VISION ZERO“ has been signed by several stakeholders in Luxembourg (the Ministries of Social Security, Labour, Employment, Health, Transport, Home Affairs, Public Service, the main national trade unions, the national employers’ organizations and the Accident Insurance Association) with the aim of decreasing the number and gravity of accidents at work, commuting accidents and occupational diseases.
For the period 2016-2022, the national objective is to reduce by 20% the frequency rate of work related accidents compared to 2014. Over the medium and long term, the objective remains the continuous decrease of severe and fatal accidents, meaning zero casualty and zero seriously injured worker.
In order to achieve these national goals, the signatories have committed themselves to develop and implement individual action plans. The latter also applies for companies, who may file their action plan on the VISION ZERO platform.
A five-year media campaign will be launched at the beginning of the year 2017.
