The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) is now looking for schemes covering road safety and public health.

It is keen to hear from experts working together in the two fields on specific projects, with case studies of successful co-working set to make up part of new guidance.

Duncan Vernon, road safety manager at RoSPA, said: "There are many common aims between road safety and wider public health where integrated or co-ordinated efforts between these two groups of professionals can have a range of benefits to both areas."

Mr Vernon explained that safer roads will lead to people using more active and healthy forms of transport, such as cycling and walking.

He gave examples of areas where road safety issues may be considered, such as health inequalities, sustainable development, active travel, injury and violence prevention and safeguarding children.

RoSPA recently provided guidance on the topic through its online handbook, Delivering accident prevention at a local level in the new public health system,ADNFCR-2754-ID-801637198-ADNFCR
