Arrive Alive Website

The construction of the web site www.arrivealive.co.za has been inspired by the efforts worldwide to promote road safety and the need for public awareness. The power of the internet as an educational tool cannot be disputed and the creation of a high quality information portal will compliment the sterling work that has been done by the Ministry of Transport to date. It is not the intention of the developers to divert any attention away from the Arrive Alive campaign or to pass-off as the official Arrive Alive website, but rather to enhance and provide more information on these and other international efforts to improve road safety.

BP Southern Africa Pty Ltd

BP’s Commitment to Road Safety 

One of the most dangerous work activities people carry out is driving. Research indicates that generally over one third of traffic accidents involve someone who is at work at the time. Apart from the loss of lives and injuries, these accidents represent serious economic burden in direct and indirect costs.

In order to reduce accidents BP introduced the Driving Safety Standard. Since adopting the Driving Safety Standard in January 2004, incidence of vehicle related fatalities and serious injuries have reduced across BP operations.

INTENT
The intent of BP’s Driving Safety Standard is to ensure a formal approach to managing driving risk for its employees and for its Companies in respect of BP vehicles. The further intent is to recommend that a comprehensive driving standard be adopted by Non-BP Companies whose employees are members of the workforce. This Driving Safety Standard is deliberately prescriptive. The aim is to reduce the number of vehicular accidents and fatalities.

PURPOSE
The Driving Safety Standard is designed to reduce the number and frequency of driving related accidents and fatalities and improve safety performance by reducing both the risk to which BP employees are exposed and the potential for harm to members of the public.

This BP Driving Safety Standard covers mandatory safety measures and precautions to be followed while operating or within a vehicle while on BP business. The Driving Safety Standard has universal application across the Group. Every group activity, administrative or operational, involves transporting goods or people. Hence this Standard will apply to:

  • Every BP employee driving any vehicle on BP business.
  • All BP vehicles.
  • BP employees travelling on BP business where applicable.


The Driving Safety Standard is mandatory in all Business Segments, Functions and Regions and is recommended to all non-BP Companies whose employees drive for and on behalf of BP.

In the event of a conflict between this Standard and a relevant law or regulation, the relevant law or regulation shall be followed. If the Standard creates a higher obligation, it should be followed as long as full compliance with the law or regulation is also achieved.

The Driving Safety Standard requires compliance with the following 10 Elements:

VEHICLE REQUIREMENTS:
1. The vehicle shall be fit for the purpose, and shall be maintained in safe working order, with seatbelts installed and functional.
2. The number of passengers shall not exceed the manufacturer's specification for the vehicle.
3. Loads shall be secure and shall not exceed the manufacturer’s specification and legal limits for the vehicle.

BP DRIVER AND PASSENGER REQUIREMENTS:
4. Drivers shall be appropriately assessed, licensed, trained, and medically fit to operate the vehicle.
5. Drivers shall be appropriately rested and alert.
6. Drivers shall not use a mobile phone or other two-way communication device while operating the vehicle.
7. In specific higher-risk countries risks of the journey shall be assessed and journey risk management policy & plans in place.
8. Seatbelts shall be worn by all occupants at all times whenever a vehicle is in motion.
9. Drivers shall not be under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or any other substance or medication that could impair their ability to drive.
10. Safety helmets shall be worn by rider and passengers of motorcycles, all terrain vehicles (ATVs), snowmobiles and similar types of vehicle.

South Africans Against Drunk Driving (SADD)

The SADD objective is to "create awareness of the Drinking and Driving problem in South Africa and to try to combat the use of alcohol and drugs by road users by working with the authorities to enforce the laws governing this abuse more strictly, and to educate the public about alcohol and drinking and driving/walking." Drunk driving in South Africa is a growing challenge for road safety educators and law enforcers. According to Caro Smit, Founder of SADD, "over 60% of the 18 000 deaths a year on the road are associated with alcohol induced drivers and/or pedestrians."

SADD is active within universities in South Africa through their peer educators and trainers. Through alcohol education courses implemented in the Universities, SADD informs the youth about the dangers of alcohol abuse.

The Department of Education (KZN) has partnered with SADD this year on implementing workshops in schools. This initiative shares information with each school by disseminating a specialized alcohol education Trainers Manual, with Practical worksheets, as well as the Soul City "Alcohol and You" Booklet, and a pamphlet on SAB's "Talking Alcohol."

The South African Red Cross Society

The South African Red Cross Society (SARCS) dates back to 1896 when four doctors formed an ambulance corps with the blessing of the President of the old Transvaal Republic, Paul Kruger. SARCS itself was founded in 1921 with the amalgamation of the various Red Cross entities which existed in the country. It was recognised by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in 1928 and admitted into the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (the International Federation) – then the League - in 1929.

Over the years, the work of the Red Cross in South Africa has changed to reflect the environment in which it is working. This means that much of today’s work is related to health and disaster management issues, particularly the devastating impact that HIV & AIDS is having in South Africa. It is estimated that 40% of deaths in the age group 19- 49 years in the year 2000 were due to HIV & AIDS.

SARCS is also involved in empowering communities to cope in times of natural or man-made disasters. Drought, floods, fires and mining disasters occur regularly, but new areas of concern are the impact of rapid urbanisation, environmental degradation, and technological failure.

As a member of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, SARCS is also obliged to provide tracing services and to disseminate knowledge about the Fundamental Principles, International Humanitarian Law (IHL) and the use and protection of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Emblem. This is essential if the Red Cross is to be respected during peacetime and times of conflict.
