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.

The recommended practices in chapter 2 are based on current experience and practices that have proven effective in reducing the number of serious incidents. This is supported by more detailed guidance and processes in the appendices.
