Abstract The "fuel retail business" handles various liquid fuels such as gasoline and gaseous fuels such as LPG. Industrial accidents in this business involve falling down or slipping on the floor or road, traffic accidents, and back pain complaints from handling gas cylinders. To prevent such accidents, comprehensive guidelines were formulated. They include specific preventive measures such as: (1) the establishment of an organisation for safety and health management according to the size of the workplace; (2) the promotion of the safety of facilities and equipment in response to the type of business and establishment of safe working methods; (3) health management measures, (4) ideal methods for safety and health education; (5) daily measures required to prevent accidents.
