MPA provides resources to support industry engagement with Vision Zero

Published by , Deputy Editor

An Employee Guide to Vision Zero, a pocket card, and three new Vision Zero PowerPoint presentations have been added to the MPA toolkit of resources available to help members promote Vision Zero within their organisations. Vision Zero was launched at the MPA & British Precast Health and Safety Leadership Conference in November 2020. The success of Vision Zero will be dependent on individuals within the mineral products industry understanding what Vision Zero is, why it is important and their role in delivering it.

At the heart of Vision Zero is the commitment to adopt the six core health and safety values and to work together to eliminate or mitigate the high consequence hazards associated with ‘The Fatal 6’. The MPA resources have been designed to help raise awareness and understanding across the industry of the six core values, ‘The Fatal 6’, the strategy to help implement them, and the new leading and lagging indicators that will be used to measure progress.

Chris Leese, Director, MPA UK Concrete and Special Advisor, Health & Safety, said, “Vision Zero was developed by the senior managers, owners and H&S experts within our membership. They have recognised that changing behaviour and focusing on those activities that are most likely to kill or seriously injure us at work will be essential to achieve a further step change in our health and safety performance.”

“MPA’s role is to support our members in delivering Vision Zero and measuring our progress over the next five years. These resources will help our members to raise awareness of all aspects of Vision Zero at every level within their organisation. Please use them and share with your colleagues."

Vision Zero Resources

The suite of resources is accessible via the Safequarry and Safeprecast websites. They complement each other and reinforce the key messages. They can be used either as an integrated pack or individually, depending on the user’s requirement and their audience.
