              Current Practice on Commuting
Overall compliance has been ranging between partial to
 – Transport allowances is offered
 – Adequate transport to the main hubs and allowances offered for onward
 – Transport provided in buses that do not comply with SP-2000
 – Tolerance in staff using public bus services that ignore traffic laws
 – Tolerance in staff commuting using private vehicles that do not even comply
 – Commuter’s ‘fitness to work’ after a possible long drive.

                           November 2006 CEOs HSE Conference
         Concerns/Issues on current practice
• Adequacy of existing policy in light of current changing
  culture and development
• Number of fatalities and serious RTAs
• Potential for major (multiple fatality) RTA
• Consistent compliance of the policy
• Fitness of individuals to work after a long commuting journey
• Terms and conditions of employment (12 or 24 hrs once in
  the field)

                      November 2006 CEOs HSE Conference
        Proposed way forward on Commuting
• Objective: Revise current policy on commuting to make it
  realistic and workable for today’s environment
• Syndicate exercise
   – Review the discussion paper, identify blockers and enablers, give
     boundaries and direction for further policy development
• Next step: Road Safety championship team to take input
  from today and develop and implement the new policy
