Abstract Two articles on the safety and health problems of expatriate staff. The first article deals with risk analysis (occupations and different types of business trips, lack of suitability to lead a "travelling life", health hazards); preventive action by the occupational health department of a large French oil company (in particular, primary prevention: vaccination, pre-travel advice, information, health education). The second article is a report on an investigation conducted by the occupational health department of the same company. In annex: text of two questionnaire surveys on the evaluation of the anti-malaria information campaign conducted by the company (1: retention of advice, aimed at all staff members liable to be sent on mission; 2: evaluation of the respect and impact of anti-malaria preventive action and of possible malaria-related health effects, aimed at all staff members who had actually gone on mission).
