Could you use Loctite or similar? There are a number of different products and I'd guess that one should do the job but still enable the screw to be undone if the need arises.

Do the threads or head looked damaged in anyway? Probably a design issue and they are vibrating loose or something.

As previous poster, try some Loctite or other thread locking compound which should help prevent it backing off through vibration.
