1.0 Purpose
Road accidents are the single largest cause of fatalities involving our workforce and third parties
across BP operations. This BPXA driving safety policy is in conformance with the BP Group
Functional Standard– Personal Safety – Driving (BP Group Standard). The intent of the BP Group
Standard is to ensure that there is a consistent approach to managing driving risk for BP
employees across BP Companies with respect to BP vehicles. The further intent is to
encourage non-bp Companies (Contractor Companies) to adopt the BP Group Standard or
develop their own comprehensive driving safety standard that meets or exceeds the BP Group
Standard for use by employees who are members of the workforce. The BP Group Standard
recognizes that there will be a “need to apply local or regional measures when implementing this
standard” and that “Business Segments, Functions and Regions may wish to exceed these
requirements.”

The goal of this policy is to provide guidance and structure to a local driving program that will
facilitate the prevention of vehicular accidents.

2.0 Scope
This BPXA policy is mandatory for all BPXA employees and for all drivers and passengers of BP
vehicles engaged in support of BPXA operations in Alaska. Applicable sections of this document
also apply to operation of a company owned, rented, leased vehicle or personal vehicles when
driven for company purposes (e.g. training, business trips, etc.). In addition, certain aspects of
the policy apply to BP employees who are passengers in vehicles when on BP business.

This BPXA policy provides the minimum requirements for driving performance and behaviors. It is
mandatory that BPXA Management and Supervision recommend adoption of this Policy or a
policy that meets or exceeds the terms of this Policy by Contractor Companies.

In the event of a conflict between this policy and a relevant law or regulation, the relevant law or
regulation will be followed unless the policy creates a higher obligation.

3.0 Definitions
BP vehicles - Vehicles owned or leased by BPXA being used in relation to BPXA business.

BP business - Any activity performed to meet BP‟s business needs as defined by “work-related”
under the US OSHA Record keeping requirements in 29 CFR 1904.5. As such, it excludes all
personal or optional activities.

Transient-use vehicle - Short term, occasional use of a vehicle that is not owned by a BP
Company and is used to conduct BP business (e.g., rental vehicle used in conjunction with travel,
taxi, limousine).

Professional Driver: Anyone that has driving as a core competency of their job. Driving is a core
competency of the job when required to drive 10,000 miles per year or for more than 15% of
working time on BP business (approximately 2 hours per day for NS slope based employees).
Mobile plants such as cranes, graders or coil tubing units are considered vehicles in the driving
standard.

Driving Category-One Drivers: All BPXA employees and all drivers of BPXA vehicles.

Operational Areas – North Slope and Nikiski lease controlled roads.

Workforce - BP employees and every employee of any other company or other legal entity that
has been engaged to perform work on BP premises directly on behalf of BPXA, or to transport
BP‟s people, materials, intermediates or products.

4.0 Roles and Responsibilities
All BPXA employees are personally responsible for compliance with the requirements of this
Policy. BPXA Supervision and Management are responsible for ensuring that their reports
receive, understand and comply with this policy. Responsibility also includes designation of
employees that meet the definition of „professional driver‟.

BPXA personnel will monitor and report on vehicle driving safety using Tr@ction and will modify
this policy as necessary in order to promote continuous improvement.

5.0 The Driving Requirements

Vehicle Requirements:
   1. The vehicle is fit for the purpose and has been maintained in safe working order with
       seatbelts installed and functional.
           a. All non-transient use light vehicles used on-road including personal vehicles,
               operated by BP employees on BP business and all BP vehicles will be maintained
               in accordance with manufacturers‟ specifications and local legal requirements
               and only be operated if the vehicle is in safe working order.
           b. All BP vehicles and personal vehicles operated by BP employees on BP business
               must have attributes and features specified and installed so that they comply with
               the respective minimum specifications defined for heavy vehicles and light
               vehicles in the Driving Safety Standard (the BP group standard?). Personal
               vehicles used on BP business must be compliant with the Group Light Duty
               Vehicle Specifications.
           c. All BP vehicles that are heavy vehicles used on-road, and non-transient use light
               vehicles used on-road will be fitted with a vehicle data recorder (VDR) able to
               record the following data: vehicle speed (speed over ground as measured by
               GPS), seatbelt status, headlight status, vehicle location (via GPS),
               acceleration/deceleration (forward, braking, turning, and vertical), engine speed
               and driving hours. VDR operations and features are provided in Appendix C.
           d. The purpose of Vehicle Data Recorders is to promote safe driving behaviors. To
               accomplish this purpose the VDR will give an audible alarm requiring vehicle
               operator action when a data input threshold is not satisfied or exceeded. If the
               driver hears an alarm, the driver should simply adjust his/her driving to return
               within acceptable limits, (for example, slow down, fasten seat belt, turn on
               headlamps, reduce acceleration, etc.) and the alarm will stop.
           e. Drivers in Operational Areas must ensure that all appropriate standard safety
               equipment (e.g. warning devices, fire extinguishers, communications radios,
               arctic gear and other equipment as appropriate) is in place and operable.

     2. The number of passengers does not exceed manufacturer's specification for the vehicle

     3. Loads both inside and outside the cab of the vehicle are secure and do not exceed
        manufacturer‟s specification and legal limits for the vehicle.

               a. All equipment, tools or other cargo being transported will be secured to prevent
                  driver distractions and injury to occupants in the event of a sudden stop or an
                  incident.
               b. All chemical or DOT-regulated loads will be appropriately labeled or placarded
                  and secured. Appropriate manifests or transport documentation must be in
                  place.

Driver Requirements:
    4. Drivers are appropriately assessed, licensed, trained, and functionally fit to operate the
        vehicle.
            a. All drivers when driving on BP business will hold a valid and current driver license
                 for the class of vehicle to be operated. Licensing compliance will be consistent
                 with Federal DOT and the state of Alaska Guidelines. Personnel whose job
                 requires them to drive on BP business must inform his/her supervisor within the
                 next working day of having their driver license suspended or revoked.
            b. Drivers requesting the use of a company supplied pool vehicle will be required to
                 present a valid drivers license and certify they have had defensive driving training.
            c. Section 9.0 lists the driver training requirements for all driver categories.
            d. All drivers are prohibited to operate a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol
                 or drugs. Consult your physician if taking prescription or OTC medication that
                 may affect your ability to drive. Inform your supervisor if restrictions apply.

     5. Drivers are appropriately rested and alert.
            a. Operators of a BP vehicle on BP business must be rested and alert and must not
                operate any vehicle when tired or fatigued.
            b. The maximum working hours, including driving time to and from the job site, for
                BPXA Professional Drivers is 16 hours per 24 hour rolling period. (This BPXA
                local limitation is an approved exception from the BP Group Standard for the
                maximum working hours.) Field Managers and Incident Commanders or their
                designee may give written approval for Professional Drivers to work longer than
                16 hours per 24 hour rolling period during emergencies.

     6. Drivers will not use a mobile phone or other two-way communication device while
        operating a vehicle, except during operational emergencies;
            Normal (non-emergency) operations:
            a. Since mobile phones are a distraction and significantly increase the risk of a
                vehicle incident, drivers will not talk on a mobile phone or other two-way
                communication device while a vehicle is in motion. When contacting someone
                you believe is driving, be patient. Wait at least two minutes prior to recalling this
                person (they have to get to a safe location and stop prior to responding back to
                you)
            b. Drivers are prohibited from initiating mobile phone and other two-way
                communication device calls while the vehicle is in motion. Passive listening is
                allowed.
            c. Drivers must defer conversation on the two-way communication devices until the
                vehicle can be brought to a stop, with no forward motion, in a location to prevent
                being a road hazard. Do not stop in high traffic locations (e.g. spine road)
            d. Passenger use of cell phones and two-way communication devices is allowed.
            Operational Emergencies:
            e. During Operational Emergencies, a Driver is allowed to use a mobile phone or
                two-way communication device. It is preferable that a passenger use the mobile
                phone or two-way communication device while the Driver pays attention to
                driving.

               g. The use of radar detectors on the North Slope lease controlled roads is strictly
                  prohibited.

     7. The need to travel must be determined before beginning the trip. If it is determined that
        the trip is necessary and the risks are manageable, the following practices will be
        followed:
             a. The following requirements address preparation to begin your journey and how to
                minimize driving in reverse:
                  i. Prior to operating any vehicle and exiting any parked location, drivers will be
                     required to do a 360 degree walk around the vehicle to ensure a clear exit
                     path, including workers who may be on foot, overhead hazards, and identify
                     any stationary objects that will require special maneuvering.              This
                     requirement is not intended for instances of moving a vehicle in a non-
                     congested area with no restricted visibility nor other vehicle traffic present ,
                     such as routine, consecutive well house readings conducted by operating
                     personnel.

Driving Safety Policy                                                                           Page 5 of 14

                     ii. All drivers should park to minimize the need to back-up when departing in
                         Operating Areas. This should include always backing in when traffic patterns
                         permit (e.g. drill sites, well pads, workover rigs, wireline units, etc.)
                    iii. At all times vehicle drivers must park their vehicles in a position that will allow
                         maximum vision when exiting.
                    iv. Spotters are required when visibility is limited to the point that a safe exit path
                         cannot be determined. When using a spotter, the spotter must be visible at
                         all times. The driver must come to an immediate stop if the spotter is not
                         visible.
                     v. All rear view mirrors must be in a condition and position to assist driver vision
                         while driving in reverse.
               b.   Vehicle and equipment operators and passengers will wear safety glasses with
                    side shields when driving in Operational Areas. When traveling by bus, only the
                    driver is required to wear eye protection.
               c.   Vehicle operators must conform with Hot Work requirements of the Alaska Safety
                    Handbook for any questions regarding the operation of motor vehicles in the
                    proximity of hydrocarbon processing facilities, pipelines or operations.
               d.   When required to park along North Slope roadways drivers must park in the
                    direction of traffic flow. The parked vehicle must always be clearly visible to
                    oncoming traffic. Utilization of flashers and other warning devices will be
                    necessary in times of darkness and/or poor visibility.
               e.   DO NOT drive through a snow blower plume when encountering snow blowers.
                    Stop until it passes or the snow blower stops. No vehicle will enter a snow plume
                    created by snow blowing operations. When passing an oncoming snow blower or
                    approaching snow blower operations, you must stop until discharge from the
                    chute has stopped and visibility is such that you can see clearly to pass.
               f.   No vehicle will pass another vehicle or piece of heavy equipment where a dust
                    plume, snow plume, or over spray (road watering operation) created by the
                    vehicle in front results in limited or poor visibility. Maintain sufficient distance
                    behind these operations so that you can see clearly. Do not pass until the
                    vehicle/operation in front stops or pulls over to the side allowing visibility such that
                    you can see clearly to pass.
               g.   Blind areas are present when operating heavy equipment. Vehicles should be
                    parked well away from heavy equipment operation. Vehicle drivers should receive
                    an acknowledgement from the heavy equipment operator before moving around
                    or near them.
               h.   Off road vehicle extrication and other towing operations should be undertaken by
                    those designated and knowledgeable of the requirements, in possession of the
                    proper towing equipment, and, experienced in the proper techniques.
               i.   Use caution when attempting to move or extricate vehicles from on-road snow
                    accumulations. The risk of moving a vehicle that is stuck in on-road snow
                    accumulations must be assessed. Considerations that must be assessed prior to
                    the activity include positions of people and equipment, using the right tool for the
                    job and ensuring the tools are in good condition.
               j.   Vehicles must safely yield to wildlife without creating additional road hazards.
               k.   Headlights shall be switched-on whenever the vehicle is being driven.


     8. Seatbelts are worn by all occupants at all times whenever a vehicle is in motion.

               a. Passengers and drivers in any vehicle equipped with seatbelts are required to
                  wear them while driving or riding in that vehicle. Seat belts are also mandatory
                  while driving or traveling in a private vehicle if it is used in the course of company
                  business.
               b. All reasonable effort should be made to use transient-use vehicles containing
                  seatbelts. When possible check with the transporter in advance about availability
                  of vehicles with seatbelts.

      1. All BP work related vehicle accidents and property damage incidents will be investigated
         according to guidelines in the Alaska Incident Investigation Manual.. All vehicle
         incidents on the North Slope are considered to be work related.
      2. Vehicles involved in an accident should be left in place until the investigating authority
         arrives on scene, if doing so does not create a greater hazard or impediment to traffic
         flow.
      3. All BP work related vehicle accidents and property damage incidents will be documented
         in Tr@ction. The Vehicle Incident Reporting Guidelines are attached in Appendix C.
         Incidents that meet the criteria of a HIPO or MIA as defined by the Corporate HSSE
         guidelines will be reported via the protocol outlined in the Alaska BU Incident
         Investigation Manual.

7.0 Performance Measures
Input performance measures will include driver training, communication of this procedure to all
drivers and recording of driving behavior observations. Output performance measures include the
vehicle accident frequency rate.

8.0 BP Employee Driving Safety Assessments and Accountability
(This section applies only to BP personnel.)
     1. The North Slope Safe Driving Check Ride Form Appendix B is not mandatory but may be
        used during driving assessments to ensure consistency in observed driving behaviors. .
     2. Unsafe driving behaviors will be treated as a serious violation. A citation or preventable
        vehicle accident will initiate at least a documented warning to the individual and may lead
        to termination if warranted. For decisions on the appropriate level of discipline, managers
        should follow the guidelines described in the BPXA Coaching and Discipline for
        Performance Improvement Policy found on the BPXA Human Resources website.
     3. In the event of a citation, the employee will be required to demonstrate a valid driver‟s
        license within 24 hours.
     4. Team Leaders will meet periodically with those individuals who have received citations to
        discuss the circumstances around the incident along with lessons learned to share with
        others.
     5. Individuals receiving citations have the right to appeal the enforcement action. The
        appeal must be in writing and sent to the appropriate Security personnel within 21 days.

APPENDIX C: VEHICLE DATA RECORDER (VDR) OPERATION
This document is to provide guidance and some clarity in the delivery of the
Vehicle Driving Safety Policy.
    1. The purpose of Vehicle Data Recorders is to promote safe driving behaviors. To
       accomplish this purpose the VDR will give an audible alarm requiring vehicle operator
       action when a data input threshold is not satisfied or exceeded. If the driver hears an
       alarm, the driver should simply adjust his/her driving to return within acceptable limits, (for
       example, slow down, fasten seat belt, turn on headlamps, reduce acceleration, etc.) and
       the alarm will stop.
    2. The VDR is provided with a compliance grace period of 15 seconds or more to allow
       drivers to make necessary corrections to driving. If a threshold is exceeded on the VDR
       beyond the provided grace period, a signal about the exceedance will be transmitted via
       satellite to a remote computer center.
    3. The Vehicle Data Recorders have the ability to detect and make notifications during the
       following “emergency events”:
            a. Panic Button - If you push the Panic Button on the VDR for 3 seconds, an
                 immediate emergency notification to BP Security is initiated.
            b. Man Away from Vehicle - You may choose to use the “Man Away from Vehicle”
                 feature. If you set the timer on the VDR and fail to return to the vehicle and turn
                 off the timer, it will send an immediate emergency notification to BP Security is
                 initiated.
            c. Vehicle Crash - In the event of a vehicle crash, an immediate emergency
                 notification is sent BP Security is initiated.
    4. BP Security will respond appropriately upon receipt of the “emergency event” signal from
       the remote computer center.

APPENDIX D: LIGHT DUTY VEHICLE SHUT-OFF PLAN
This plan outlines actions to prevent unintended movement of a light duty vehicle

To mitigate the risk of a fatality, serious injury or damage to property caused by unintended
movement of a light duty vehicle (including pickups, box vans and flat beds), the BPXA Driving
Policy (UPS-US-AK-ALL-ALL-HSE-DOC-01333-2.doc) has been updated to incorporate the
following actions for stopping and exiting vehicles that will be left idling.

Normal Vehicle Parking When Vehicle Will Be Left Idling

The following actions are intended whenever a vehicle is parked normally and will be left idling.
The BPXA Vehicle Idling Policy would require that the vehicle be turned off in most instances
where the ambient temperature is warmer than -30 ºF as noted below. There will only be one
exception as defined in the section below, "Exiting an Idling Vehicle to Conduct Routine Short-
term Tasks".

   Safely drive and stop the vehicle in the pre-determined parking place.
   Put the transmission in Park and SHUT OFF THE ENGINE.
   Adhere to BPXA's Vehicle Idling Policy - 1) Warmer than -10 ºF leave vehicle off when
    parked; 2) between -10 and -30 ºF when parked at bull rail, leave vehicle off and plug it in; 3)
    between -10 and -30 ºF if parked away from bull rail for two hours or less, leave vehicle off;
    4) below -30 ºF vehicles used every day can be left idling, plug in others.
   Exit the vehicle and properly place the containment if you need to restart vehicle.
   Re-enter the vehicle and start the engine.
   Safely exit the parked vehicle.

Exiting an Idling Vehicle to Conduct Routine Short-term Tasks

The following actions are intended for use only by those individuals that are required to make
frequent stops within their roles for only several minutes at a time. In these cases, the policy of
placing containment underneath the engine compartment does not apply and therefore the risk of
a driver being in the "line of fire" of unintended vehicle movement due to containment placement
would be eliminated. It is also recognized that requiring numerous vehicle shutdown and re-starts
during a 12 hr shift creates its own risk to employees working alone in Arctic conditions in terms of
battery and alternator wear, leading to potential reduction in vehicle reliability.

   Safely drive and stop the vehicle in a position with no "line of fire" obstacles in front of vehicle
    such as bull rails, well houses, pipelines or other structures.
   Put the transmission in Park and engage the parking brake (do not use parking brake if
    temperature is below freezing).
   Safely exit the vehicle, taking care not to position yourself in the "line of fire" of unintended
    vehicle movement.
   Following task completion, re-enter the vehicle and disengage the parking brake.
   Safely drive the vehicle to its next stopping point.
