LONDON (AP) - BP's incoming chief executive is setting up a new safety division to monitor the company's operations around the world.

Bob Dudley announced the initiative Wednesday, two days before he succeeds Tony Hayward as CEO of the oil company. Dudley said the new unit will be headed by Mark Bly, who led the team which produced BP's recent report on the causes of the Gulf of Mexico oil blowout.

Dudley also announced that Andy Inglis, head of BP's Upstream business, will leave the company. Upstream will be reorganized into three units covering exploration, development and production.
