With about 6,000 accidental deaths occurring in British homes every year, a new free workshop from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) aims to help house builders and architects ensure their projects are safer for all residents. RoSPA has developed guidance, titled Safer by design, to help those involved in the planning and development of new-build projects ensure they are preventing the most common accidents in their homes, with a particular focus on falls – at least 700 people die as a result of falling on domestic stairs every year. RoSPA’s Safer by Design framework has been endorsed by Public Health England.
