Abstract Mandatory occupational health programmes provided by public health agencies in Quebec are evaluated. Interactions between the number of services provided by local health teams, and (1) the value attributed to the primary prevention of occupational injuries by the firm's management, and (2) the length of service of the firm's occupational health and safety committee are positively associated with the number of measures implemented by the firms to eliminate the dangers at source. However, the low response rate decreases the statistical power of the study. Results indicate that outcomes of the programmes are associated with the programme process as well as with the implementation environment of the programme. Topics: health programmes; implementation of control measures; legislation; plant safety and health organization; programme evaluation; Quebec; safety programmes.
