VISION ZERO for Sustainability along Global Supply Chains – beyond Due Diligence Obligations

22-23 de octubre de 2024 | BerlinAlemania

The global economy is characterized by its organization through extremely complex and increasingly fragmented supply chains, which have long spanned the entire globe and which cover many different intermediate levels. All starts with the agricultural production process or extraction of raw material and finally ends up with selling to the customer. It is well known that favourable sales prices may be achieved at the expense of inadequate working conditions for workers along the supply chain, with the result of high occupational accident and disease rates.

Being aware of this situation, the International ISSA Sections on Prevention in the Chemical Industry, Construction, Information, Mining and Trade collaborate closely and jointly invite to the symposium

“Vision Zero for Sustainability along Global Supply Chains –
beyond Due Diligence Obligations – GSC Berlin 2024“

Berlin / Germany – 22–23 October 22024

The main aim of the GSC Berlin 2024 Symposium is to bring together industry and other stakeholders to discuss the challenging situation and to offer approaches to solve the related problems. Discussions on initial positions of concerned stakeholders will be followed by the presentation of the ISSA Guide “Improving safety, health and wellbeing in workplaces along global supply chains by Vision Zero” that was recently published at the 23rd World Congress on Safety and Health in Sydney. The guide is based on the successful VISION ZERO Strategy of ISSA and defines the concept of SHW+ for global supply chains to be achieved.

Stakeholders from various sectors will illustrate the broad complexity of the topic. They will share experiences and give insight into how different industries as well as authorities deal with their respective challenges.

Presentations will cover aspects like:

  • Information and awareness building
  • Legal framework
  • Sustainability and resilience
  • Corporate strategy solution and best practices
  • Accident prevention
  • Occupational health and wellbeing

The aim of the symposium is to offer practical experiences of an international network of experts and to provide impulses to critically rethink existing supply chain processes.

If you are working in occupational safety, health and wellbeing and/or in the implementation and supervision of supply chain projects, the symposium will provide you with relevant information on current developments as well as plenty of opportunity to discuss health and safety issues with colleagues from all over the world.
