Mr. Helmut Ehnes is Chairman of the International Social Security Association VISION ZERO Steering Committee.
Mr. Ehnes offers more than 35 years of professional experience in the field of occupational safety, health, and wellbeing at work. After receiving a degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Technical University of Munich, he went on to become a Labour Inspector at the German Statutory Accident Insurance.
Since joining the International Social Security Association (ISSA), Mr. Ehnes has played a key role as the Secretary General for ISSA Mining, Technical Secretary for ISSA Trade, and Chairman of several Vision Zero committees. Mr. Ehnes has made an impact in the occupational health and safety not only within Germany, but in collaboration with many international efforts in the EU and across the globe.
Launched at the last World Congress three years ago, Vision Zero has found a broad acceptance in the world of industry, organisations and occupational health and safety professionals. What started as a campaign has gradually become part of a prevention culture and a sound strategy to improve prevention performance beyond compliance. Following the demands of the occupational safety and health community, we have been working with businesses, social security institutions, researchers and professional training providers to take Vision Zero to the next level.
In this session the International Social Security Association will present to you
- The new Vision Zero Training Programme - a newly developed Vision Zero training course for companies, to be delivered by accredited Vision Zero trainers
- The new Vision Zero Proactive Leading Indicators – a guide to measure and manage safety, health and wellbeing
- Exciting experiences and Vision Zero success stories from the occupational safety and health community
