||A training programme on health education was carried out in a penal hospital in Spain with a view to the control and prevention of hospital infections and accidents. Courses were designed and given to various categories of workers with potential exposure to infection: sanitary assistants, clinical assistants, guards and cleaning staff. The programme was evaluated through a survey of the working processes and a questionnaire survey. The results showed that working processes were standardised and safety and health measures improved after the course.
