Our mission

Our mission is to be a global leader in the subject of occupational safety. We believe that all accidents can be prevented and we are prepared to act accordingly.

We are convinced that there is a moral, social and economic right to work in safety. Employees and employers can master risks together.

The basic rules of the Zero Accident Forum

  • Together with managerial and non-managerial staff, we develop and improve our occupational safety with the aim of preventing all accidents.
  • Workplace health and safety are part of our work.
  • We undertake to forward relevant occupational safety information (at least the accident rate, see point 7 of the contract) to the Zero Accident Forum on an annual basis.
