The government should start to tackle the hidden epidemic of home accidents, one specialist has stressed.

Tom Mullarkey, chief executive of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), has told authorities to make accident prevention a priority, which may lead to the introduction of more safety signs.

Mr Mullarkey said: "It is time to adopt this common-sense approach and converge the need to save money in the NHS with the need to save the lives of our people. Accident prevention is the 'low hanging fruit' of public health and should now become its first priority."

RoSPA has found that the total annual cost of home accident casualties is estimated to be £45.63 billion.

This month, over 200 safety experts from across the globe congregated in Leicester for a health and safety conference.

People flocked from destinations such as Singapore and the Caribbean to attend the event, which commenced at the Marriott Hotel on November 8th and 9th.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801213661-ADNFCR
