The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) has announced a new conference focussing on accident prevention.

Entitled Prioritising Accident Prevention: A Public Health Issue, the event will be held at Hilton London Paddington Hotel on March 21st and is aimed at directors of public health, local authority public health workers and anyone involved in accident prevention.

Sheila Merrill, RoSPA’s public health adviser, said: "The transferring of public health responsibilities to local authorities offers a chance to re-evaluate the issues which compete for funding, and to make changes which have a real impact on the health of the population.

"Accidental injury is an area to which Health and Wellbeing Boards should be giving serious consideration. Accidents ruin and take lives, while generating huge costs for the NHS in patient care."

As well as raising awareness of health and safety, RoSPA regularly hands out awards to organisations for their exceptional work in the field.

It recently presented Trent and Dove Housing with the Platinum award, which is the second highest level in the charity's Quality Safety Audit award scheme.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801538047-ADNFCR
