Abstract This workshop was one of the special sessions during the XIth World Congress on the Prevention of Occupational Accidents and Diseases, held in Stockholm, Sweden, in May 1987. The presentations focused on two essential issues in accident prevention: knowledge and motivation. Knowledge about accident risks at a company is the basis for accident prevention activities but action also requires motivation for safety. There were 4 presentations on how to obtain and use knowledge to improve safety and 4 on how to increase safety motivation. The report contains the opening speeches, all the papers presented and the concluding remarks from the workshop.
