The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) is to hold a health conference to highlight how accidents are the leading cause of preventable early death up to the age of 60.

Prioritising Accident Prevention: A Public Health Issue  is set to take place at the Hilton London Paddington Hotel on March 21st, where RoSPA's chief executive Errol Taylor will show how accident prevention can help to save lives.

Sheila Merrill, RoSPA’s public health adviser, said: "Accidents cost the NHS around £20-30billion every year. It is a cost it can ill afford at a time when health services need to make major savings.

The upcoming changes in public health make now the ideal time to take a more robust and coordinated approach to injury prevention."

RoSPA strives to save lives in the UK and reduce the number of injuries in the country and has unveiled  a number of awards to incentivise businesses to boost the safety of their operations.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801554111-ADNFCR
