Zero Accident Forum

Learning from one another for zero accidents

Source: -

The "Zero Accident Forum – Learning from one another for zero accidents" has been in existence since October 2013. This is a network of companies that all have one goal: to reduce the number of work-related and commuting accidents in their company to zero – using all appropriate means. Its members are companies of all sizes and from all industries. The focus is on regular exchange and networking. A host forum member invites them to a meeting once a year. Membership is free of charge.

The Zero Accident Forum (ZAF)

  • is only open to companies, institutions and business associations
  • attaches great importance to the involvement of small and medium-sized enterprises/institutions
  • aspires to an exchange across different industries and companies of all sizes
  • is a voluntary network that does not pursue commercial interests
  • wants to advance safety culture and behaviour-based safety
  • promotes the exchange of good practices and thus learning from one another.

In order to address specific aspects of occupational health and safety, members can exchange information in focus groups.
