    Free home safety equipment: RoSPA Scotland looking after child safety will help stem child accident compensation

    The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents in Scotland has recently launched Scotland’s Home Safety Equipment Scheme. Running from April 2013 to June 2014, the scheme is a collaboration between RoSPA Scotland and the Scottish government who are providing £265,000 of funding.

    RoSPA Scotland have this month launched a Home Safety Equipment Scheme north of the border, and are working with local agencies to identify 600 families who are most in need of free safety equipment in their homes. The Scottish government has provided funding of £265,000 and the scheme runs from April 2013 to June 2014.

    Each family identified as being eligible by local councils and child agencies will be visited by a fire safety officer from the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service. They will talk to families about the most common types of accidents in the home, and the best way to prevent them. Appropriate equipment such as fire guards, bath mats and cupboard locks will then be allocated to the family, and fitted by a trained equipment fitter.

    Statistics on the Information Services Division (ISD) Scotland website show that in the age group 0-14, ‘Injuries in the home account for over one third of emergency admissions to hospital,’ and that ‘Children in the 1-4 age group account for over half of these admissions.’

    Leading child accident compensation law firm: Accident Advice Helpline, welcomed the new initiative and a representative of the company had this to say,

    “The statistics speak for themselves, and anything that can be done to reduce these figures is money well spent. It’s easy to become complacent and feel safe in your own home, but there are so many day-to-day hazards, home is sometimes the most dangerous place to be.”

    The Home Safety Equipment Scheme supports the general approach to child safety in Scotland, illustrated by the Early Years Collaborative, which aims to reduce inequalities for families in Scotland and give Scottish children a great start in life.
