Resumen Account of a health protection programme for workers living in a newly created industrial city in Saudi Arabia. The planning of the health services for more than 50,000 workers (representing 55 nationalities) started on the basis of a study identifying the major health hazards involved in the industrial activities (petroleum refining, manufacture of petrochemical products, fertilisers and steel); these were fire and explosion hazards, heat stress, noise and chemical substances. The health services which are free of charge to the workers are briefly described.
