Home safety activity in Scotland

Home safety and accident prevention are key issues for Scotland. RoSPA Scotland in collaboration with Home Safety Scotland research local authority views and involvement in the topic.

Overall, a mixed picture of home safety activity was found along with clear barriers and a need for improvement.

Key recommendations from this research include:

  • Home Safety Scotland should increase its membership to include all 32 local authorities in order to share best practice
  • Home safety should be included in Local Outcome Improvement Plans
  • National organisations and the Scottish Government should carefully consider the barriers to home safety activities and ways to overcome them
  • The need for a national target should be researched.
