Keynote Speakers

Alejandra Cruz Ross, Transport Specialist, International Labour Organization (ILO)

Road Safety and Decent Work: Responsibility and Occupational Safety and Health 

In order to better manage the relationship between the safety of the general public and road transport operations it is necessary to bridge the gap between transport regulation and occupational safety and health (OSH) legislation and programmes. Effective safety management systems require drivers to adopt a preventive safety culture and requires employers and other transport chain parties to develop and promote an OSH culture and OSH policies. This keynote speech will draw on international labour principles adopted in 2019 by the United Nations International Labour Organization contained in the Guidelines on the promotion of decent work and road safety in the transport sector.

Alejandro Furas, Latin New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) Secretary General and Global NCAP Secretary General & Vice President of Technological Affairs
