‘Go for Zero’, ‘Goal Zero’, ‘Zero accidents’or ‘Zero unsafe behaviour’ are bold statements that are used to decidedly illustrate a workplace safety ambition. While we encourage ‘Go for zero’ as an ambition, strategy or mindset, we do not advise it as a target because it is the journey that matters, not the destination.
