Abstract The analysis of occupational accidents in a German gas company revealed that 40% were due to stumbling, slipping and falling. A training programme for employees was worked out. In courses employees were taught safe behaviour on ladders, stairs, on the level and when getting in and out of cars. Video-films, overhead transparencies and posters were used to illustrate dangers and methods to prevent accidents.
