Abstract This study considers various aspects of a safety programme (definition of objectives, external conditions which may affect its preparation and implementation, facilities available within the firm), reviews the various functions of the safety system which can be used in order to reach certain fixed targets (issuing of safety standards, workplace inspection, a priori hazard analysis, occupational medicine, evaluation of situations, backing and supporting activities etc.) and examines the problems met in implementing a safety programme (emphasis to be given to each function, delegation of safety responsibilities within the firm, measures to be envisaged). In conclusion, examples of safety programmes are briefly described, in an ammunition laboratory, a cement works, and a steel mill.
