The International Section of the ISSA on Prevention in Agriculture published its Annual Review 2019, which summarizes the activities of the Section and its members undertaken in 2019 as part of the "Vision Zero" campaign of the International Social Security Association (ISSA).
The document briefly presents information on:
- the “Vision Zero” campaign,
- the “Vision Zero” guides for farmers and agricultural entrepreneurs developed by the Section,
- the 39th International Colloquium of the Section “Vision Zero – World Prevention Strategy in Agriculture”, which took place in Cordoba in May 2019,
- the activities undertaken by three members of the Section – KRUS, Mela and SVLFG – as part of the Vision Zero campaign.
“Vision Zero” is a transformational approach to prevention that integrates three dimensions of safety, health and well-being at all levels of work. Accidents at work and occupational diseases are neither predetermined nor unavoidable – they always have causes. By building a strong prevention culture, these causes can be eliminated and work related accidents, harm and occupational diseases be prevented.
The Annual Review 2019 also promotes participation in the "Vision Zero" campaign and encourages people to join the Section on Prevention in Agriculture.
