Information on Accident Prevention has been compiled with the expert help and guidance of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA). RoSPA’s purpose is to enhance the quality of life by exercising a powerful influence for accident prevention.
A registered charity that was established over 80 years ago, RoSPA provides information, advice, resources and training, and is actively involved in the promotion of safety in all areas of life – at work, in the home, and on the roads, in schools, at leisure and on (or near) water. RoSPA aims to campaign for change, influence opinion, contribute to debate, educate and inform – for the good of all.
