Driving-related events continue to be the single largest cause of fatalities in the oil and gas industry. Only by implementing a common set of expectations based on industry best practice and experience can the industry as a whole make any significant headway in addressing this issue.

The International Association of Oil and Gas Producers (OGP) formed a Task Force comprised of several leading member organizations with a charter to produce a document that captured established best practices from industry. This document then would be used to provide a benchmark for land transport safety program content. Each member company is expected to implement the document, or Recommended Practice, themselves and to expect implementation by their contractors.

The purpose of this paper is to introduce the Recommended Practice to participants at the 2007 E&P Environmental and Safety Conference, provide insight and background for the document, and to discuss implementation of its elements.
