ROSPA has released a series of webinar recordings on preventing accidents at home. These cover a range of safety-related topics including how to keep a child safe around water, fire safety, Halloween and firework safety, discussions about inequalities and unintentional injuries.
It is estimated that around 60% of all accident-related visits to A&E departments are due to accidents that either happen at home or at leisure. Due to COVID-19, people of all ages are spending more time at home and ROSPA says these figures are likely to increase.
The webinar recordings are part of a campaign to educate, inform and help people prevent home accidents and are suitable for families, communities and practitioners.
