On October 21th, a start-up meeting for the Danish Vision Zero Council took place at the Tivoli Congress Center in Copenhagen. The meeting was hosted by Human House, a leading Danish OSH-consultancy, and counted safety and health managers from a number of major companies, including Novozymes, FL Smidth, Haldor Topsoe, Bavarian Nordic, Grundfos and Hempel.
Pete Kines from the National Research Centre for the Working Environment in Denmark presented the ISSA’s brand-new Leading Vision Zero indicators, which he has co-authored. Hans-Horst Konkolewsky gave a status for the Vision Zero campaign and informed about the activities of the Global Vision Zero Business Council, which will collaborate closely with the Danish Council. Lars Hoffmann, Head of EHS Expert Center at Siemens, and founding member of the Global Council, gave an exciting presentation about Siemens’ “Zero Harm Culture”.
Lars Tornvig, director at Human House, was pleased with the outcome: “I think we had a very promising launch of The Danish Vision Zero Council and I am in particular pleased that we from the very beginning can count on the support of no less than 14 major Danish companies from different industries, all ambitious in safety, health and well-being. The meeting was held in a good atmosphere with lively dialogue, and judging by the feedback we received from participants it was a really good start of the Danish Council.”
