Vision Zero: A national strategy towards a culture of prevention in Luxembourg / A case of the Accident Insurance Association

Implementation year
2016

The long-standing partners, the Luxembourg Accident Insurance Association (AAA), the Luxembourg Employers Association (UEL) and its National Institute for Sustainable Development and Corporate Social Responsibility (INDR), launched in 2016 national Vision Zero strategy for the promotion of occupational health and safety as part of the 10th Anniversary edition of the Annual Occupational Health and Safety Forum, in the presence of Their Royal Highnesses the Hereditary Grand Duke and Grand Duchess.

The national Vision Zero charter was signed by 12 national institutions: 6 ministries (Departments of Social Security, Health, Employment, Sustainability, Home Affairs and Civil Service), 3 national trade unions and the Vision Zero initiators (AAA, UEL and INDR).

Given the achievements of the first phase of Vision Zero and the significance of this issue, the initiators of Vision Zero (AAA, UEL and INDR) have decided to launch a second Vision Zero phase (2023 to 2030) in order to continue the efforts in the area of occupational health and safety, with a special focus on risk sectors. The national Vision Zero strategy is now officially supported by the government (Government Council decision of 24 October 2022).
