Abstract In France, the average direct cost of an occupational accident is FRF 15,000. Indirect losses, including lost work time, production losses and equipment repairs can represent a further one to three times this amount. The purpose of this safety guide is to help companies organize their approach to hazard prevention in a simple manner: identify the hazards, select the hazards to be addressed in priority, implement solutions. It includes a one-page sheet for each of 18 frequent occupational hazards, describing typical causes and suggesting solutions. Replaces CIS 01-363.
