Abstract The report of this technical meeting (Lucerne, Switzerland, 17-19 May 1978) reproduces the text of the main address and the contributions and comments on the theme: safety for electricians, and their basic and advanced training. Some of the 39 papers published are devoted to training problems and methods in various countries (Austria, France, Germany (Fed.Rep.), Hungary, Spain, Switzerland, USSR); others are concerned with special technical subjects having a direct impact on the prevention of electrical accidents: electrophysiology, hazards of explosive atmospheres, electrical accidents and preventive measures, live work and work near live installations, training programmes and methods, work on building sites. The contributions and comments are reproduced fully in the original language, with a summary (the basic address is, however, translated in full) in the 2 other working languages. An earlier ISSA publication containing summaries of the contributions and papers presented was abstracted as CIS 78-1221.
