||The purpose of this survey was to understand how enterprises manage fire hazards, the extent of training of personnel in fire safety, the type of installations available for fire fighting and the frequency with which these installations are maintained. A 101-item questionnaire was addressed to 1200 selected enterprises in all fields of activity. Results are presented in 10 tables. Only 4% of the enterprises have a fire service, and for the majority (55%), the management of fire hazards is the responsibility of the occupational safety and health services. There is a notable tendency towards automation of technical detection installations rather than towards using surveillance services. In 98% of the enterprises, maintenance is carried out by accredited companies. Finally, 90% of the enterprises surveyed have personal protection plans and 94% provide training to their personnel so that they can intervene in the event of a fire.
