Africa Road Safety 2015 will focus on some of the serious gaps in road safety in countries across the African continent, particularly in the sub-Saharan region. The event will comprise a range of stimulating capacity building workshops, keynote addresses and plenary sessions over two full days.
Launched by Nestlé Philippines in 2009, Safety Beyond the Gates is a programme that seeks to create awareness among employees and third party transport service providers on the importance of road safety.
“At the end of the day, we want our employees and our third party transport service providers to go home to their families safe and sound, without injuries. The Safety Beyond the Gates programme fosters a collective mindset that promotes safety while on the road so as not to endanger oneself and others,” Supply Chain Management Director Robert Vallender explained.
The Asian Development Bank (ADB), Global Road Safety Partnership (GRSP), International Road Assessment Programme (iRAP) and FIA Foundation partnered to organize Asia Pacific Road Safety 2015 held from 28-30 April in Manila, Philippines.
The seminar saw 186 road safety experts, practitioners, business representatives and senior government officials from all over the region and the world attend a full agenda of workshops, discussions and keynote addresses.
