Our aim is to provide thought-provoking discourse on health and safety matters, to give advice and information, to comment on current affairs – and hopefully to dispel a few of the myths surrounding health and safety.
The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents is a charity championing safety in the workplace, at home, on the roads, in and around water, at leisure and in education. Its mission is to save lives and reduce injuries and it has been at the heart of accident prevention in the UK and around the world for almost 100 years.
RoSPA’s philosophy is that life should be as safe as necessary, not as safe as possible. It is neither feasible nor desirable to remove all the risks life throws at us. It is usually enough to ensure that people are provided with as much information as possible about their activities, in order that they may make informed decisions about managing risks.
Contributors from all areas of safety will write for the blog.
