About the Healthcare Vision Zero
The work of healthcare professionals and workers is fast-paced and unrelenting. It is important to ensure their safety and well-being, to prevent injuries due to slips, trips, and falls, over exertion, ill-health and others. As they work hard to look after the community, we must commit to taking care of them too, so that they can be safe, healthy, and well.
To kickstart the healthcare industry’s commitment towards Vision Zero (VZ), 13 key industry stakeholders came together and adopted the tagline, “Caring for the Well-being, Safety and Health of our Healthcare Workers”. The industry firmly believes that with care, zero harm to staff and stakeholders is possible and all workplace-related injuries and ill-health are preventable.
