Chevron Wins Prince Michael International Road Safety Award

Chevron Becomes First Energy Company Recognized for its Road Safety Programs

SAN RAMON, Calif., Aug. 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Chevron Corporation (NYSE:CVX) has been awarded the Prince Michael International Road Safety Award in recognition of its work engaging governments and nonprofits worldwide to help save lives through improved road safety in countries where the company operates.

The Prince Michael International Road Safety Award is given to companies or organizations for outstanding achievement and innovation in road safety worldwide. The award is sponsored by the U.K.-based FIA Foundation for the Automobile in Society and managed by RoadSafe, a member of the Global Transport Knowledge Partnership. The award is named after His Royal Highness (HRH) Prince Michael of Kent, Patron of the FIA Foundation's Commission for Global Road Safety.

"Chevron rates road safety highly and is an example to all in the corporate sector of the importance of sharing knowledge - a vital ingredient for building sustainable road safety programs in any country," said HRH Prince Michael of Kent.

"Every 30 seconds, a person is killed in a road crash," said RoadSafe director Adrian Walsh. "Around the world, road traffic crashes cause 1.2 million deaths and 50 million injuries per year. Of those casualties, more than half are in the 15 to 44 age group - the key wage-earning and child-raising group. The Prince Michael International Road Safety Award recognizes those companies and organizations making a difference toward alleviating this global problem. Chevron stood out to our award committee as a company committed to a holistic approach to road safety - addressing issues from multiple angles, pedestrians and drivers alike."

Among the programs honored:

-- Arrive Alive - Through this initiative, Chevron has engaged Guatemala,
Nigeria, South Africa, Uganda, and El Salvador to work collaboratively
toward road safety improvements such as the installation of rumble
strips, lane markings and signage, seat belt and pedestrian safety
campaigns, and distribution of motorcycle helmets.
-- Road Transport Safety Management Plan (Worldwide) - The comprehensive
fuel delivery plan sets a world class example for the management of
fleet operations and driver safety. A key component of the plan is the
Master Driver Program, which recognizes fuel tank drivers who have
driven 20-plus years without an incident.
-- Children's Road Safety Campaign (U.K. and Ireland) - Program features
a series of books, Web sites and videos about Hector, a child on his
way to school and all the safety related behaviors he uses along the

-- "Stop for Life, Drive Your Behaviors" (Venezuela) - A public awareness
campaign aimed to educate drivers about the importance of using seat
belts as well as dangers of speeding and drunk driving.

"Safety has long been a part of our company's heritage and values," said Chuck Taylor, Chevron's vice president for health, environmental and safety. "It's an honor to be recognized for our road safety efforts."
