Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA)
At RoSPA, we strive for life, free from serious accidental injury.
This has been our story for more than a century, and the challenge remains great. More than 14,000 people are killed in accidents across the UK each year with thousands more suffering injuries, many of which are life-changing.
Yet, accidents don’t have to happen.
We’re proud to be at the heart of accident prevention in the UK and around the world, working to stop the needless loss and devastation that accidents cause to individuals, families, communities, businesses and society as a whole.
The only UK charity to work across occupational health and safety, and road, home, leisure and education safety, we promote the exchange of life-enhancing skills and knowledge by:
- Researching the evidence base for accident prevention, campaigning on the big issues and sharing advice and information.
- Providing training, consultancy, qualifications, events and products for businesses and professionals to help them manage risks to their workers and others.
- Welcoming organisations into our membership and awards communities where they can learn from best practice and celebrate their achievements.
