Abstract The objective of this programme launched in 1998 was to incite enterprises with high rates of accidents in the Spanish region of Aragon to implement effective preventive management systems and, where appropriate, to inflict penalties on those that did not undertake any actions. Over the years, the average reduction in the number of accidents among enterprises participating in the programme reached the order of 30%. However, there are enterprises which despite participating to the programme are still not able to reduce their accident rates. This article discusses some of the problems identified in the course of the programme and proposes some specific improvement strategies.
