Work to Zero

Work to Zero Aims to Eliminate Workplace Deaths

Today, we have cars that nearly drive themselves and we carry supercomputers in our pockets. So, how is it possible that we still lose nearly 5,200 workers each year?

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, even as workplace injuries have declined, the number of fatalities has remained relatively flat, even increased in some years.

Time for a New Approach

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.

Leveraging a coalition of practitioners, solution providers, academics and researchers, the WORK TO ZERO initiative will scan the state of the science, investigate best practices and offer opportunities to gather the best of the best in safety technology. In short, Work to Zero will serve as a hub of digital transformation in safety.

Coming Soon

Watch for a new report on the state of safety technology and a landmark summit on digital transformation in safety to come in early 2020.
