                                              DEFINITIONS

        Term                                                    Definition

Fatality (FTL)            A fatality is a classification of a death resulting from a Work Injury, or
                          Occupational Illness, regardless of the time intervening between injury/illness
                          and death.
First Aid Case (FAC)      Any one-time treatment and subsequent observation of minor scratches, cuts,
                          burns, splinters, etc., which do not ordinarily require medical care by a
                          physician. Such treatment and observation are considered First Aid even if
                          provided by a physician or registered professional personnel.
Lost Time Injury (LTI)    Lost Time Injuries are the sum of Fatalities, Permanent Total Disabilities,
                          Permanent Partial Disabilities, and Lost Workday Cases. Note, if, in a single
                          Incident 20 people receive lost time injuries, then it is accounted as 20 LTI's
                          (not 1 LTI).
Lost Workday Case         A Lost Workday Case is any reportable injury other than a Permanent Partial
(LWC)                     Disability which renders the injured person temporarily unable to perform any
                          Regular Job or Restricted Work on any day after the day on which the injury
                          was received. In this case "any day" includes rest day, weekend day,
                          scheduled holiday, public holiday or subsequent day after ceasing employment.
                          (This definition deviates from OSHA guidance that considers restricted work as
                          a lost workday case).
                          A single Incident can give rise to several Lost Workday Cases, depending on
                          the number of people injured as a result of that Incident. It is a Lost Time Injury.
Medical Treatment         A Medical Treatment Case is any reportable injury that involves neither Lost
Case (MTC)                Workdays nor Restricted Workdays but which requires treatment by, or under
                          the specific order of, a physician or could be considered as being in the
                          province of a physician.
                          Medical Treatment does not include First Aid even if this is provided by a
                          physician or registered professional personnel.
Near Miss                 A Near Miss is an Incident that resulted in no injury, illness, damage, product
                          loss or harm to the company reputation. It therefore has an Actual severity
                          rating of 0. It can have any Potential severity rating except 0.
Occupational Illness      An Occupational Illness is any work-related abnormal condition or disorder,
                          other hand one resulting from a reportable injury, caused by or mainly caused
                          by exposure to environmental factors associated with the employment. It
                          includes acute and chronic illness or diseases that may be caused by
                          inhalation, absorption, ingestion, or direct contact.
                          Whether a case involves a reportable injury or an occupational illness is
                          determined by the nature of the original event or exposure that caused the
                          case, not by the resulting condition of the affected employee. Injuries are
                          caused by a single event. Some exceptions exist such as malaria and food
                          poisoning which are classified as OCC. Illnesses. Cases resulting from
                          anything other than a single event are considered occupational illness. Refer to
                          HSE/97/01 for more detail.
Non-accidental death       Any case of death of a person either:
                           - where there is no identifiable incident or trauma involved, or
                           - which is the result of an apparent suicide.

        Term                                                    Definition

Permanent Partial          Permanent Partial Disability is any work injury which results in the complete
Disability (PPD)           loss, or permanent loss of use, of any member or part of the body or any
                           permanent impairment of functions of parts of the body, regardless of any pre-
                           existing disability of the injured member or impaired body function. It is a Lost
                           Time Injury.
Permanent Total            Permanent Total Disability is any work injury that incapacitates an Employee
Disability (PTD)           permanently and results in termination of Employment. It is a Lost Time Injury.
Restricted Work            A Restricted Work Case is any work injury which results in a work assignment
Case (RWC)                 after the day the Incident occurred that does not include all the normal duties of
                           the person's Regular Job. The restricted work assignment must be meaningful
                           and pre-established or a substantial part of a Regular Job.
Road Traffic               An Incident which has involved a vehicle and which has resulted in actual Injury
Accident (RTA)             and/or Damage (Loss) Assets, the Environment or the Company's reputation.
                           For the purpose of PDO's Incident Reporting procedures, windscreen damage
                           caused by thrown up road debris e.g. stone chips shall not be statistically
                           reportable unless more serious damage or personal injuries occur as a result.
Severity Rating            A classification of the actual or potential severity of injury, loss, damage, impact
                           or effect as used in the HSE Risk Matrix found in PDO's Incident reporting
                           procedures - HSE/97/01.

For more detail and definitions refer to the „Incident Notification, Investigation, Reporting and Follow-
up‟ Procedures and Guidelines (HSE/97/01).

                 DOCUMENT C-9.1 PARTICULAR HSE REQUIREMENTS

        All Work or Services shall conform to the Particular (Document C-9.1) and General (Document
        C-9.2) HSE Requirements. In the event of conflict between the Particular HSE Specification
        and the General HSE Specification, unless otherwise expressly stated herein, then the
        Particular HSE Specification shall prevail.

        The Contract Holder shall review the Particular HSE Requirements and modify the text where
        appropriate and where indicated in italics.

1.0     Hazard Assessment
        The Company has identified the following potential groups of hazards associated with the work
        to be performed under this contract:

        *
        *
        *
        *
        *

        The Contractor shall note that the above list of hazards is not exhaustive and Contractor shall
        perform its own hazard analysis during Tender preparation.

2.0     Contract HSE Requirements
        As a minimum the Contractor shall comply with PDO‟s HSE requirements as set out in the
        contract. Contractor shall develop its own work procedures specific to the nature of its
        operation, addressing the management of HSE hazards. Where Contractor‟s requirements
        exceed those of PDO, the higher requirement shall prevail, and Contractor shall advise PDO in
        all such instances.

        The Contractor shall develop and implement an HSE Management System (HSE MS). An HSE
        MS is a system of policies, programs, procedures, specifications, etc. that the Contractor uses
        to manage its HSE performance. The HSE MS shall ensure that the Contractor:

             Has an effective HSE Policy and supporting programs, procedures and specifications in
              place;
             Manages its activities in line with PDO‟s HSE Policy;
             Complies with the laws of the Sultanate of Oman and PDO‟s internal requirements;
             Sets HSE objectives and targets;
             Measures, records, appraises and publicly reports its HSE performance;
             Identifies the hazards associated with its work activities; and
             Implements appropriate procedures and controls to minimise any potential adverse HSE
              effects.

        Contractor shall develop a Preliminary Contract HSE Plan as part of its Tender submittal to
        verify that all hazards associated with the work or services have been identified and that
        adequate control and recovery measures have been determined. If awarded the Contract, the
        Contractor shall carry out a complete detailed analysis of all hazards and develop a Contract
        HSE Plan. Minimum Contractor requirements for developing a Preliminary Contract HSE Plan
        and a Contract HSE Plan are provided in the „Specification for Contract HSE Requirements‟
        (SP-1080).

                    Appendix 9.1E - Exclusions, Exceptions and
                         Additional Particular Standards
        This Appendix includes a number of important amendments to Chapter 5 of the „HSE
        Standards Manual‟ and the „Transport Standards Manual‟. These road safety related
        amendments have been included in this C-9 specification as a result of the pending removal of
        the HSE Standards and Transport Standards Manuals, to be replaced with the HSE
        Specification for Road Transport as part of the revised HSE-MS.

        The new „HSE Specification for Road Transport‟ is anticipated to be issued following HSE IC
        approval in November 2001. Once this new HSE specification issued, this C-9 will be updated
        accordingly. Until that time, the following amendments will be incorporated into the existing
        Chapter 5 of the „HSE Standards Manual‟ and the „Transport Standards Manual‟. Any
        suggestion users wish to make for the proposed „HSE Specification for Road Transport are
        welcome and should be forwarded to CSM/5.

        Should the Contractor consider that any other of these revisions to C-9 effect the valuation or
        progress of the Work or Services, then the Contractor has 14 days in which to give notice of
        such effect. If submitted this Contractor‟s notice must list the headings under which the
        Contractor considers the Work or Service is affected. Full particulars of the consequences of
        the revision to C-9 must be forwarded within 28 days of the Contractors notice being given.


E.1     Nature of Amendments
            An extension of PDO‟s existing night driving rules to cover blacktop roads (note that the
             Night Driving Policy – Guidelines for Implementation SRG/G/07 is now obsolete).

            An amendment to the PDO Transport Standards Manual, General Vehicle Standards, that
             will now allow the use of 2 wheel drive vehicles on graded roads (note that the minimum
             ground clearance requirement of 190 mm remains).

            Re-classification of Light Vehicles (LV‟s), Heavy goods Vehicles (HGV‟s) and buses in line
             with Royal Oman Police (ROP) classifications.

            Removing the "graded roads" requirements for interior based vehicles and replacing it with
             specifications for vehicles based on the road type (i.e.: „blacktop‟ and „graded‟) rather than
             the geographic location.

            Changing Light Vehicle standards to include Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and airbags
             for driver and front-passenger. This change applies to all new vehicles registered after 01
             September 2001.

            Setting the minimum driver age to 21 years for all new PDO and Contractor staff joining
             after 1st July 2001.

            New Defensive Driving training requirements, starting 01/July/2001, for drivers of PDO and
             Contractor vehicles on blacktop and graded roads (including requirements for all drivers at
             the coast).

E.2     Driving at Night
        The following text shall replace Paragraph 4.6, entitled "Driving at Night" of Chapter 5 (Road
        Transport Safety) of the HSE Standards Manual (October 96, Revision 2). Note that the
        existing SRD/G/07 "Guideline on Night Driving Policy" is now obsolete.

4.6     Driving at night - Principle
        PDO and Contractor personnel shall not drive on graded or blacktop roads outside of the
        Muscat Capital Area during the Night, with the exception of those specific exclusions listed in
        section 4.6.1 below.

        „Muscat Capital Area‟ is defined as the area between the Bid Bid filling station, the Barka
        roundabout and Al Hajar on the Quriyat road. (Note: this definition is more restrictive than the
        "Coast" definition currently in use for PDO driving permit and other requirements). „Night‟ is
        defined as the hours of full darkness, from 15 minutes after sunset until 15 minutes before
        sunrise.

        Based on historic incident data, the increased risks associated with Night driving are collision
        with camels, other animals, unlit obstacles and other road users. There is also an increased
        risk of falling asleep during the Night with the potential for collision and rollover. PDO and
        contractors shall therefore reduce the Night driving risk to a level that is as low as reasonably
        practicable (ALARP).

4.6.1 Exceptions
        The exceptions as described below in section 4.6.1.1 to 4.6.1.7 shall apply.

            To comply with the „spirit‟ of this Night driving specification a planning effort is at all times
             expected in order to minimise Night driving and achieve ALARP risk levels.
            Management of Night driving is a line responsibility.
            All activities shall be planned to avoid the need for Night driving even where the approved
             activity itself takes place during the Night. Supervisors responsible for working activities
             are to ensure that their activities do not require Night driving by support functions or
             service providers.

4.6.1.1 Cargo Haulage
        Cargo haulage with "Heavy Goods Vehicles" is allowed during the Night on blacktop roads
        only. For the purpose of this article only, "Heavy Goods Vehicle" is defined as: a motor vehicle
        having a Kerb Weight (ie: empty vehicle) of more than 4000 kg (four thousand) and which is
        designed to pull a trailer or carry cargo. Note: a "Canter" is NOT classified as a "Heavy Goods
        Vehicle" as per this definition.

4.6.1.2 Crew Changes
        Crew changes are allowed during the Night on blacktop roads only. These crew changes shall
        make use of a Heavy Bus (i.e.: 26 passenger seats or more plus driver).

4.6.1.3 Operational Reasons
        Night driving for operational purposes may be considered within the broad activities listed in
        Attachment 1, and authorised by the PDO line personnel also identified in Attachment 1. Night
        driving within these broad activities shall be managed by the identified authority within the
        framework of this standard and according to his discretion at the time of the prevailing
        circumstances. Formal approval must be given before any Night driving for operational
        purposes.

        Safety versus cost benefit is the governing criteria to determine approval of Night driving for
        operational purposes. Night driving shall only be authorised if, all circumstances considered,
        the increased risk is considered justifiable and manageable with respect to the potential
        financial loss, as follows:

            Night driving to attend actual or potential production outage should not be authorised if the
             accumulated oil deferment will be less than 150 m3 net. If the expected deferment will
             exceed this level then Night driving may be authorised within this Specification.

            Night driving to avoid costs resulting from unplanned operational circumstances should not
             be authorised if these costs are less than $15,000. If the costs exceed this level then Night
             driving may be authorised within the terms of this Specification.

        In all cases where Night driving is authorised against these parameters, the authorisation shall
        be auditable by the completion of a "Night Driving Approval Form" as per Attachment 2.

        Any planned, once-off or routine, operation potentially requiring Night driving shall be assessed
        by the executing department for consistency with the Night driving specification and guidelines.
        Night driving for any planned operations not listed in Attachment 1 will require the prior
        approval of the relevant Asset Manager.

4.6.1.4 Between Work Site and Camp Site
        Night driving is allowed between work site and camp if these are not more than 5 km apart. For
        drilling rigs only, Night driving is allowed between rig site and campsite regardless of their
        distance.

4.6.1.5 Between PDO and Contractor Camps
        Night driving is allowed between PDO and Contractor camps in the same locality if these are
        not more than 5 km apart.

4.6.1.6 Emergency Purposes
        Night driving associated with declared emergency situations shall be managed within the
        framework of PDO Emergency Procedures and is authorised by the Local Emergency Base
        Controller (LEBC), the Duty Director or the Line Manager as appropriate and at their entire
        discretion.

4.6.1.7 Transport of Deceased Person
        In principle transport of a deceased person during the Night is not allowed unless the family
        insists. The LEBC shall decide on the approval of transport of the deceased person during the
        Night. Transport of a deceased person during the Night shall be in either a convoy of at least
        two vehicles, or with a police escort.

4.6.2   Speed Limits for driving at Night
        Speed limits for driving at Night shall be 80 kph maximum for all blacktop roads outside the
        Muscat Capital Area (Government and PDO) and 60 kph maximum for all graded roads unless
        road or weather conditions dictate a lower speed for safety.

4.6.3   Journey Management during Night driving
        Normal Journey Management procedures, as specified in paragraph 2.2 of the HSE-Standards
        Manual (chapter 5), shall apply during Night driving.

        Paragraphs 2.1.2 and 2.1.3 entitled "Requirements to Drive PDO Vehicles" and "Requirements
        to Drive Contractor Vehicles" Chapter 5 (Road Transport Safety) of the HSE Standards Manual
        (October 96, Revision 2) shall be replaced with the following text:
        Drivers shall be:

        I.       A minimum of 21 years of age (this clause shall NOT apply for employees that are
                 already employed prior to 01/July/2001)
        II.      Medically fit
        III.     Not fatigued
        IV.      Not under the influence of drugs, medicine or alcohol

        Drivers shall have:

        V.       a valid ROP approved driving licence
        VI.      a valid PDO driving permit for the appropriate vehicle/road class as per Table 1 below

        New arrivals/visitors driving LVs on blacktop only shall be exempt from item VI above (PDO
        driving permit) for a period of 30 days after arrival in Oman.

        Expiry and validity of PDO driving permits:
        The permits do not have an expiry date as the defensive driving courses are one-off events.
        However, the validity of a permit is limited to one year from the date of passing the DD-01 or
        DD-02 course. The validity is extended annually by successfully completing the "Professional
        Assessment Drive" (2hrs, DD-O6) with a PDO authorised driving instructor. Drivers that fail to
        pass the annual "Professional Assessment Drive" shall re-attend the defensive driving course.

                   Appendix 9.1F - Du Pont Supervisor‟s Safety
                    Training Observation Programme (STOP)



Key Points to Consider when comparing Contractor Equivalent Supervisor‟s Programme to
STOP:

1. The program shall have a structured training programme implemented over several months in 7
   training units. The training programme addresses the fact that modifying behaviour requires time
   to learn the skills, practice the skills and integrated them into the individual‟s safety habits.
   Training requires individuals to spend 2 – 2½ hours on each training unit, a total of 14 – 17 hours
   over several months. This comprehensive „brainwashing‟ training is the main advantage of STOP
   when compared to other observation programmes. If a Contractor‟s „equivalent‟ Observation
   Programme does not have a comprehensive structured training programme it cannot be
   considered an equivalent to STOP.

2. After training STOP requires supervisors to:
   Carry out STOP observations on a daily basis
   Carry out a STOP audit on a regular basis. Time should be set aside, say weekly, to carry out a ½
    hour STOP audit on a specific area of the worksite.

3. STOP requires encouragement of good safety practice.

4. STOP is not just filling out and sending in an observation card. It requires you to follow the
   observation cycle, Decide – Stop – Observe – Act – Report. One of the most important aspects
   is the communication with the personnel during the STOP audit/observation. This is when the
   supervisor can encourage good behaviour/practice and with the individual identify and discuss
   unsafe acts and hazards. Also he must make sure the individual understands the unsafe acts and
   hazards.

5. STOP does not recommend establishing a quota system for the number of cards filled in as it can
   lead to a „safety competition‟ environment.

6. There should be an audit system for Safety Observation Cards submitted. An example is given in
   Appendix 5 of the STOP Administrator‟s and Leaders Guide.

7. Submitted Safety Observation Cards should be used at the worksite during HSE meetings.

8. To help ascertain whether the Contractor‟s audits/observations conform to STOP‟s, there is a Joint
   Observation Tour Checklist in Appendix 6 of the STOP Administrator‟s and Leaders Guide.

                        Summary of the Du Pont Supervisor‟s Safety
                         Training Observation Programme (STOP)


Objective
To eliminate incidents and injuries. The key to eliminating incidents and injuries is to modify
behaviour by observing people as they work and talking with them to encourage safe working practices
and eliminate at-risk behaviour.

Principles
STOP is based on a safety philosophy that consists of the following principles:
 All injuries and occupational illnesses can be prevented.
 Safety is everyone‟s responsibility.
 Management is directly accountable for preventing injuries and occupational illnesses.
 Safety is a condition of employment.
 Training is an essential element for safe workplaces.
 Safety audits must be conducted.
 Safe work practices must be reinforced and all unsafe acts and unsafe conditions must be
    corrected promptly.
 It is essential to investigate injuries and occupational illnesses as well as incidents with the
    potential for injury.
 Safety off the job is an important element of the overall safety effort.
 Preventing injuries and occupational illnesses is good business.
 People are the most critical element in the success of a safety and health programme.

Main Concepts
   Unsafe behaviour causes injuries.
   Line management is accountable for safety.
   Standards determine performance.
   Silence is consent.
   Behaviour indicates attitude.
   Understanding increases motivation.
   Hazards can be minimised.
   Safety has the highest priority.
   Safety is a daily responsibility.

Techniques
STOP follows the Safety Observation Cycle; Decide – Stop – Observe – Act – Report

   Decide that safety auditing is an important priority. Allocate time to audit people‟s work practices
    and behaviour on the job.
   Stop near enough to the person so that you can clearly see what he or she is doing. Be alert for
    evaporative acts in the first 10 to 30 seconds.
   Observe everything the person is doing in a careful systematic way as you review the audit
    categories in your mind; i.e. reactions of people, personal protective equipment, positions of
    people, tolls and equipment, procedures and house keeping.
   ACT by talking with the person to reinforce safe work practices and address at-risk behaviour.
   Report your observations and actions on a STOP safety observation card.

                                              DEFINITIONS

        Term                                                    Definition

Fatality (FTL)            A fatality is a classification of a death resulting from a Work Injury, or
                          Occupational Illness, regardless of the time intervening between injury/illness
                          and death.
First Aid Case (FAC)      Any one-time treatment and subsequent observation of minor scratches, cuts,
                          burns, splinters, etc., which do not ordinarily require medical care by a
                          physician. Such treatment and observation are considered First Aid even if
                          provided by a physician or registered professional personnel.
Lost Time Injury (LTI)    Lost Time Injuries are the sum of Fatalities, Permanent Total Disabilities,
                          Permanent Partial Disabilities, and Lost Workday Cases. Note, if, in a single
                          Incident 20 people receive lost time injuries, then it is accounted as 20 LTI's
                          (not 1 LTI).
Lost Workday Case         A Lost Workday Case is any reportable injury other than a Permanent Partial
(LWC)                     Disability which renders the injured person temporarily unable to perform any
                          Regular Job or Restricted Work on any day after the day on which the injury
                          was received. In this case "any day" includes rest day, weekend day,
                          scheduled holiday, public holiday or subsequent day after ceasing employment.
                          (This definition deviates from OSHA guidance that considers restricted work as
                          a lost workday case).
                          A single Incident can give rise to several Lost Workday Cases, depending on
                          the number of people injured as a result of that Incident. It is a Lost Time Injury.
Medical Treatment         A Medical Treatment Case is any reportable injury that involves neither Lost
Case (MTC)                Workdays nor Restricted Workdays but which requires treatment by, or under
                          the specific order of, a physician or could be considered as being in the
                          province of a physician.
                          Medical Treatment does not include First Aid even if this is provided by a
                          physician or registered professional personnel.
Near Miss                 A Near Miss is an Incident that resulted in no injury, illness, damage, product
                          loss or harm to the company reputation. It therefore has an Actual severity
                          rating of 0. It can have any Potential severity rating except 0.
Occupational Illness      An Occupational Illness is any work-related abnormal condition or disorder,
                          other hand one resulting from a reportable injury, caused by or mainly caused
                          by exposure to environmental factors associated with the employment. It
                          includes acute and chronic illness or diseases that may be caused by
                          inhalation, absorption, ingestion, or direct contact.
                          Whether a case involves a reportable injury or an occupational illness is
                          determined by the nature of the original event or exposure that caused the
                          case, not by the resulting condition of the affected employee. Injuries are
                          caused by a single event. Some exceptions exist such as malaria and food
                          poisoning which are classified as OCC. Illnesses. Cases resulting from
                          anything other than a single event are considered occupational illness. Refer to
                          HSE/97/01 for more detail.
Non-accidental death       Any case of death of a person either:
                           - where there is no identifiable incident or trauma involved, or
                           - which is the result of an apparent suicide.

        Term                                                    Definition

Permanent Partial          Permanent Partial Disability is any work injury which results in the complete
Disability (PPD)           loss, or permanent loss of use, of any member or part of the body or any
                           permanent impairment of functions of parts of the body, regardless of any pre-
                           existing disability of the injured member or impaired body function. It is a Lost
                           Time Injury.
Permanent Total            Permanent Total Disability is any work injury that incapacitates an Employee
Disability (PTD)           permanently and results in termination of Employment. It is a Lost Time Injury.
Restricted Work            A Restricted Work Case is any work injury which results in a work assignment
Case (RWC)                 after the day the Incident occurred that does not include all the normal duties of
                           the person's Regular Job. The restricted work assignment must be meaningful
                           and pre-established or a substantial part of a Regular Job.
Road Traffic               An Incident which has involved a vehicle and which has resulted in actual Injury
Accident (RTA)             and/or Damage (Loss) Assets, the Environment or the Company's reputation.
                           For the purpose of PDO's Incident Reporting procedures, windscreen damage
                           caused by thrown up road debris e.g. stone chips shall not be statistically
                           reportable unless more serious damage or personal injuries occur as a result.
Severity Rating            A classification of the actual or potential severity of injury, loss, damage, impact
                           or effect as used in the HSE Risk Matrix found in PDO's Incident reporting
                           procedures - HSE/97/01.

For more detail and definitions refer to the „Incident Notification, Investigation, Reporting and Follow-
up‟ Procedures and Guidelines (HSE/97/01).

1.0     Introduction
        Ref. Section 2.2.3 of HSE Management of Contracts Procedure, PR-1171, Authorised for issue
        1/1/99.

        All contract work presents some level of HSE risk. However, certain contracts present
        sufficiently low HSE risk that they may be classified as Low-Risk Contracts. The determination
        as to whether a contract is low-risk shall not be made based solely on the value of the contract,
        but shall consider the scope of services to be provided and the specific activities to be
        undertaken.      Abbreviated HSE contracting procedures may be followed for contracts
        determined by the Contract Holder to be low-risk.

        The Contract Holder shall conduct an HSE Assessment (refer to „Guidelines for Hazard
        Management in Contracts‟, HSE/97/05) as part of the contract planning process. In the HSE
        Assessment the Contract Holder shall identify the hazards associated with a particular
        contract, and evaluate the corresponding HSE risk of each hazard using a risk matrix (refer to
        the „Risk Management Code of Practice‟, CP-131, for the current PDO-approved risk matrix).
        Low-Risk Contracts are defined as contracts where the HSE risk of each of the hazards
        identified in the HSE Assessment is determined to below. Examples of contracts that may be
        determined to be low-risk include:

            Office-based consulting services (coastal and foreign operations only);
            Computer support services; and
            Secretarial and administrative services.

        For Low-Risk Contracts, the following minimum requirements of C-9 apply.


2.0     Hazard Assessment
        The Contract Holder shall document the decision to classify the Contract as a low risk Contract
        in a note to file, identify the contract as a Low-Risk Contract in the CMP, and receive approval
        of the CMP by the Contract Owner. Appendix 9.3A provides the pro-forma.

        For office based contracts following risks are identified:

            Fire
            Road traffic within MAF area
            Smoking
            Alcohol and drugs
            Occupational Health Risks

        For Contractor Staff travelling to and/or visiting PDO Production Facilities at the coast and in

                  Appendix 9.3C – Code of Practice for Smoking
                           Introduction (ref. MD Circular 17/98)

No life-style other than tobacco smoking has a greater impact on health. Cigarette smoking remains
the most important cause of acute and chronic adverse health effects including preventable early
death. For this reason, the attached new Code of Practice for Smoking has been introduced with effect
from 8th July 1998.

Recent scientific literature shows:

    1. The Ministry of Health has identified smoking as a growing problem in Oman. A survey of the
       Health and Nutrition status of Omani Families showed a prevalence for smoking of 2% among
       mothers and 24% among fathers.
    2. At the age of 69 years, 80 % of male non-smokers in Britain are still alive, 61% of the total
       group of male smokers are alive; and of those smokers, who smoke at least 25 cigarettes a
       day, only 50 % are alive.
    3. In the year 1995 it is calculated that in developed countries male smokers died 13 years
       prematurely on average. Of the persons who die before the age of 69 years (about 25%), die
       22 years prematurely on average and the remainder who die aged over 70 years of age, die 8
       years prematurely.
    4. Extrapolation from WHO statistics as well as from epidemiological findings from the Australian
       petrochemical industry suggests that, of deaths amongst Shell employees annually, at least
       100 are due to smoking related diseases.

As you can see, the new „Code of Practice for Smoking‟ creates a workplace environment where
exposure to tobacco smoke is completely under control and passive smoking will not occur. The
Company suggests that smokers consider the benefits of giving up smoking. The Company will assist
any smoker who would like to quit smoking. For more information about the updated „Code of Practice
for Smoking‟ and its corresponding implementation plan you can check the „health pages‟ on the PDO
Web (Health, Safety & Environment).

I look forward to everyone‟s full co-operation in implementing this important step aimed at improving
the health of all people who work in PDO buildings.

                                           Code of Practice

The Company conducts its business against high standards of safety, and concern for the environment
and the health of its employees. The Company will create a working environment where exposure to
tobacco smoke is completely under control and passive smoking will not occur. It wishes to ensure that
all employees recognise this major health threat. No life-style other than tobacco smoking has a
greater impact on health. Cigarette smoking remains the most important cause of preventable death in
the world. Passive smoking can cause acute and chronic adverse health effects.

It must be clearly understood by all staff that the following rules have been implemented with effect
from 8th July 1998:

No smoking will be allowed in:

       offices including single-occupancy-offices, meeting rooms, warehouse buildings or workshops
       indoor seating areas of PDO restaurants whether on the Coast or in the interior
       PDO vehicles, Company hired aircraft or buses

The results of this Code of Practice will be:

    1. Non-smokers will not be exposed to tobacco smoke in their working environment. Smokers will
       be encouraged not to smoke during their working hours and will only be allowed to smoke
       outside Company buildings.
    2. The Company recognises that many smokers have the strong wish to cease smoking and will
       encourage employees concerned to seek the advice at the earliest opportunity of Medical
       Officers who will assist them.
    3. As part of the occupational health programme special health promotion packages with respect
       to the issue of smoking are available and will be presented to the employees by their asset or
       departmental HSE advisers.

                   Appendix 9.3D – PDO Alcohol & Drugs Policy

Key Statement

   The abuse of alcohol, use of illegal drugs, or misuse of legal drugs can impair performance at
   work and can be a serious threat to safety, health and environment. The Company wishes to
   ensure that all employees recognise this threat and aims at creating a situation where the usage
   of alcohol and drugs can be no threat to the safety our business, the environment and the health
   of our employees.

Guiding Principles

       The Company encourages employees who believe they have a dependency on alcohol or
        drugs to come forward in confidence to their supervisor or medical, and receive assistance in
        accordance with the rehabilitation facilities that are available.
       Inability to perform one's duties through impairment by alcohol or use of illegal drugs or misuse
        of legal drugs is regarded as serious misconduct;
       Possession, distribution, sale or use of alcohol and illegal drugs (or legal drugs which are
        misused) on the Company‟s business premises is regarded as serious misconduct;

The Company Approach

1. The Company recognise alcohol or drug dependency as a treatable condition and encourages
   employees who believe they have a dependency to seek Medical and Company advice at the
   earliest opportunity. Such employees will be assisted in accordance with the Rehabilitation policy.

2. Employees discovered to have an alcohol/drugs dependency by means other than self-disclosure
   may, depending on the circumstances, be offered assistance in accordance with the Rehabilitation
   policy. Also, only limited time-off with pay will be granted, and being on a rehabilitation programme
   does not provide an excuse for further misconduct, which will be regarded as a disciplinary matter.
3. If dependency is discovered as a result of a disciplinary situation, the individual will be subject to
   the normal disciplinary procedure. Dependency will not be allowed as mitigating circumstances in
   a disciplinary procedure.

4. Searches for alcohol and drugs may be conducted where the Company has reasonable grounds to
   believe alcohol or drugs have been brought onto its premises. Failure to cooperate will be
   regarded as serious misconduct.

5. Alcohol and drug testing may be required of an employee when circumstances suggest the
   possibility of impairment by alcohol or drugs. Typical circumstances would be abnormal behaviour
   or appearance, absence or lateness problems, unreliable information supplied, or situations of
   disputed possession. This is defined as "with cause testing".

6. Testing will be conducted by a third party according to agreed procedures, and requires the
   employee's written consent. A positive test will be regarded as serious misconduct. If an
   employee does not consent to a test, any disciplinary case arising from the incident where the test
   was requested will still go ahead and a decision will be made, but without the evidence that the test
   would have provided (which could have been that there was no alcohol involved). An employee
   may themselves request a test to clear their name, and the result will form a part of any disciplinary
   investigation.

7. Employees must be alert to possible side effects or impaired efficiency from prescribed drugs or
   medications when taken as a treatment for a health condition. It is the employee‟s responsibility to
   advise their supervisor of potentially impairing side effects. Failure to do so could give rise to
   disciplinary action. Equally, when drinking alcohol off-duty, employees should ensure that the time
   before them to be on duty is sufficient for them not to be impaired.

8. Tests will be the responsibility of the Royal Oman Police where there is damage to public property
   or personal injury and in all road traffic incidents. The conduct of these tests will continue to fall
   fully under their jurisdiction.
