Four explicit accident prevention indicators added to the Public Health Outcomes Framework have been welcomed by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), and may cause firms to adopt new safety signage.

These four indicators are directly linked to killed or seriously injured casualties on England's roads, hospital visits prompted by unintentional and deliberate injuries among under 18s, falls in the over 65 age group and hip fractures.

Errol Taylor, RoSPA's deputy chief executive, said: "The crucial issue now is that sufficient resources are devoted to accident prevention, particularly to arrest the worrying trend of rising home and leisure accidents that we have seen in recent years."

RoSPA also stated that the challenge is to guarantee that local authorities and healthcare commissioning groups give them the necessary attention.

This news comes after the South Yorkshire Times reported that new safety measures have been introduced to the Swinton canal in South Yorkshire.

British waterways have planted extra vegetation along the canal bank, in addition to extra fencing.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801273908-ADNFCR
