AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH NURSES SUPPORTS VISION ZERO CAMPAIGN
Chicago — AAOHN (American Association of Occupational Health Nurses) signed on as a partner of Vision Zero just prior to the North American global campaign launch in May at the NIOSH Total Worker Health Symposium. To date, over 2,000 companies, partners and trainers from 90 countries worldwide have joined this campaign since its launch last year.
Developed by the International Social Security Association (ISSA), Vision Zero is based on the belief that all workplace injuries, illnesses, and fatalities are preventable. Vision Zero offers a range of resources, including the “Seven Golden Rules,” a roadmap for successful, practical management concepts that focus on health, safety, and well-being issues for any country or companies of any size.
“AAOHN is dedicated to promoting the health and safety of workers and workplace communities,” said Mary Gene Ryan, MPH, RN, COHN-S/SM, CSP, FAAOHN, President of AAOHN. “Supporting the Vision Zero campaign allows occupational health nurses to be a part of this global initiative and champion for healthy workplace cultures.”
