Land transportation safety recommended practice

11 July 2011

Driving related incidents are the single largest cause of fatalities in OGP member company operations. Between 1998 and 2004, OGP member companies reported 183 members of our workforce have died in driving incidents. Studies conducted by the World Health Organisation (WHO) predict that road deaths will increase and that by 2010 they are heading towards becoming the second largest contributor to mortality globally. Considering this forecast, the 1996 E&P Forum Land transportation safety guidelines have been revised to provide the oil & gas exploration & production (E&P) industry with recommended practices and guidance to address this issue in areas where OGP member companies and their contractors/subcontractors operate. The main objective of this document is to help reduce, and ultimately eliminate, the number of serious road traffic incidents and fatalities by providing guidance on how to implement land transport safety elements in a management system which is consistent with the OGP Guidelines for the development and application of health, safety and environmental management systems (OGP report 210). These guidelines have been developed to be sufficiently generic to be adaptable to different companies and their cultures worldwide, and to gain acceptance of their workforces. They are applicable to all parts of the E&P industry including operators, contractors and subcontractors, and provide information on elements which can be utilised by the communities in which the OGP member companies operate. This edition includes minor updates made in July 2011.
