Work to Zero

Work to Zero Aims to Eliminate Workplace Deaths

Since 1913, the National Safety Council has used data, expertise and innovation to solve some of the toughest workplace safety problems. Yet over the past decade, as workplace injuries have declined, the number of fatalities has remained relatively flat, even increased in some years.

The Council’s Work to Zero initiative, supported by a grant from the McElhattan Foundation, aims to make workplace deaths a thing of the past. Using decades of insight, data and an unparalleled network of safety leaders, it will identify the most promising technological innovations for eliminating workplace fatalities in our lifetime. In short, Work to Zero will serve as a hub of digital transformation in safety.

Attend Work to Zero Summit, Campbell Symposium

Make plans now to attend the inaugural Work to Zero Summit Feb. 13-14 at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort & Spa, Bonita Springs, FL. The Summit brings together EHS, research and technology solutions leaders for a landmark event focused on the intersection of safety and emerging technology. Hear from envelope-pushing organizations leveraging technology, explore groundbreaking new research and network with like-minded peers to generate new insights and ideas.

A foundational white paper released at the Summit will review the current state of safety technology, provide insight from interviews with more than 40 EHS professionals, map major sources and causal factors of workplace deaths, and share recommendations on the most promising safety technologies.

The Campbell Institute Symposium, Gateway to the Future of EHS, will precede the Work to Zero Summit Feb. 11-12 at the same location.

Work to Zero Advisory Council

The Work to Zero Advisory Council is a volunteer group of EHS and technology experts composed of industry, academic, government and other thought leaders who strategically advise the Council on efforts to eliminate workplace deaths. Its primary responsibilities are to inform Work to Zero research projects by providing expertise, insight and access to networks that enrich the initiative, shape outreach and event projects, and engage external parties to broaden the initiative’s reach and knowledge.

The Advisory Council meets via bi-monthly teleconference meetings and bi-annual face-to-face meetings, such as at the NSC Congress & Expo, Campbell Institute Symposium and/or Annual Work to Zero Summit. If you are interested in learning more, email [email protected].
