Foreword

According to statistics, road accidents are perhaps the most frequent cause of death of external factors.

The global road fatality indicator is several times higher than the total number of fatalities caused by work-related injuries and industrial disasters.

Approximately one third of Exploration and Production operations fatalities are caused by road transport accidents. It is fundamental to ensure personnel safety of own, contractor staff and third parties involved in any EP land transportation. To maintain Company Safety reputation it is imperative to significantly improve land Transportation Safety Performance and reverse the deteriorating trend seen in 2006 & YTD 2007 towards ‘zero fatality’ in support of the NO HARM business principle.

This opportunity was identified as a way to address the road transport incidents in the July 2007 Shell EP Leadership Forum where SPD took very active participation and endorsed as one of four potential Sharper Focus Campaign work streams for Goal Zero in September, where safety was recognized as a fundamental, deeply-held value, just as we view honesty as part of our General Business Principles.
