New injury data released to help stop accidents

The Injury Profiles have been launched by the South West Public Health Observatory (SWPHO) in an effort to reduce the number of accidents in England.

SWPHO introduced the figures on behalf of Public Health Observatories in England to allow comparisons to be made across different regions with regard to the number of people taken to hospital due to accidents.

The new data has been fully supported by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), which believes that the work represents "major progress" in tackling injury rates.

Errol Taylor, RoSPA’s deputy chief executive, said: "Injury Profiles will not only enable accident prevention resources to be targeted effectively, by highlighting where problems lie, but will also be extremely useful in evaluating investment in prevention."

The comments come after RoSPA announced that it will hold a seminar in April, which aims to investigate how water safety can be improved in the current economic climate.

The National Water Safety Seminar will take place in Birmingham on April 26th.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801327028-ADNFCR
