Our 'safety' case studies highlight some of BP's environmental and social initiatives from around the world
Walking the line to zero in Toledo
During 2016 we completed a major maintenance and upgrade exercise at our Toledo refinery in the US. This involved a full shutdown of the plant to carry out the work.
Driving change in Brazil
The World Health Organization estimates that fatalities from road traffic accidents in Brazil are double the rate experienced in the US.
Responding to an oil spill in the North Sea
Although our priority is to prevent oil spills and other releases, they can still happen. In October 2016, approximately 95 tonnes of oil and a quantity of water leaked from the Clair platform into the sea due to a technical issue.
Virtual reality prepares teams for real-life challenges
Virtual reality is leading to real results as BP collaborates with Maersk Training to prepare our offshore drilling teams for challenges they face on the job.
Self-verification: there's an app for that!
A BP-commissioned app loaded onto tablet computers is helping our global wells organization monitor and improve operating discipline, reducing safety incidents related to incorrect following of procedures.
