Abstract: The Regional Office is developing a series of brief technical brochures aimed at local authorities, to provide them with accurate and practical information on environment and health issues. One of the topics in the series is accidents, an area of environment and health where local authorities constantly face difficult situations. Pamphlets are to be issued covering local policy for accident prevention, child accidents, accidents and older people, fire safety, water safety, road safety, home safety, playground safety and sport and leisure safety. Since close coordination is needed between the authors of the various documents in order to avoid overlaps and to ensure that most of the important topics are tackled, a meeting was convened to allow discussion among the specialists on the basis of the papers prepared by them. The background documentation for these discussions was a detailed table of contents produced by each author prior to the meeting. The participants also proposed illustrations and case studies, finalized the detailed contents of the pamphlets, and drew up a timetable setting the deadlines for the first draft, the final text and the layout
