The webinar celebrates the 20th anniversary of the Finnish Vision Zero Forum by gathering workplaces and experts around the world to share perspectives to Vision Zero. Through an inspiring collection of presentations, participants will have the opportunity to learn about real-life experiences from various workplaces, showcasing the practical application of Vision Zero.

Vision Zero represents a commitment to the continuous development of safety, health, and well-being at work. It encompasses effective measures to prevent work-related accidents and diseases, as well as innovative practices that promote safety.

Considering the numerous challenges faced in today's working environment, it is essential for us to envision how we can collectively contribute to a more sustainable and resilient future at work.

Avbrott och för stor arbetsmängd är belastningsfaktorer som lyfts fram mer än tidigare8.2.2024 08:30:00 EET | Tiedote

Återkommande avbrott i arbetet, för stor arbetsmängd och hård arbetstakt skapar avsevärd psykosocial belastning på arbetsplatserna. Enligt den nyaste Arbetarskyddspanelen som riktats till arbetarskyddspersonalen bedömer var tredje person att avbrott återkommande förekommer på arbetsplatsen. Det samma ansåg var fjärde person år 2016. Även för mycket information och ständig nåbarhet ökar belastningen.

Keskeytykset ja liian suuri työn määrä ovat nousseet entisestään kuormitustekijöinä8.2.2024 08:30:00 EET | Tiedote

Työn jatkuvat keskeytykset, liiallinen työn määrä ja kova työtahti aiheuttavat merkittävää psykososiaalista kuormitusta työpaikoilla. Työsuojeluhenkilöstölle suunnatun tuoreimman Työsuojelupaneelin mukaan joka kolmas arvioi keskeytyksiä esiintyvän omalla työpaikalla jatkuvasti, kun vuonna 2016 näin arvioi joka neljäs. Kuormitusta lisäävät myös liiallinen tiedon määrä ja jatkuva tavoitettavuus.
