"Zero Injury" is a Management Commitment to all employees that an injury, any injury, is simply unacceptable! Such a commitment communicated throughout an organization is culture changing! Safety behaviors that were once OK are no longer acceptable. Employees willingly change! Safe work becomes the norm. Supervisors become strong advocates. Conflict over safety in your firm ceases to exist. All work day by day for the ultimate achievement. An entire year without a single injury.

"Zero Injury" is a behavior-based approach to obtaining that long sought after shift from ordinary safety performance to world class! There are hundreds of Zero Injury practitioners today and this number is increasing daily. The successful are working millions of hours without a single serious injury. Some over a million hours without a recordable! This is world class safety!

Zero is Not a Goal
Going for ZERO INJURY requires a COMMITMENT to ZERO!
Zero Injury should not be your goal! Any goal allowing for injuries reflects an acceptance of failure and an attitude that some injury is OK. Make Zero a commitment! In a Zero program, any injury becomes unacceptable!
