Scotland's Big Book of Accident Prevention


Accidents cost the lives of an average of 1,294 people in Scotland every year, and are the leading cause of death in the country up to the age of 44.

As a result, RoSPA estimates that accidents in Scotland cost society £12.4billion every year, with home and leisure accidents accounting for £7.8billion of this cost.

And while deaths on the road are falling, these are offset by a rise in fatal home and leisure accidents.

Yet prevention is fairly easy to implement and inexpensive to deliver. That's why it is one of RoSPA's key campaigns to make accident prevention a priority for employers, communities and public health.
