The official evaluation report for Safe At Home, the first national home safety equipment scheme, has been made public at RoSPA’s National Home Safety Symposium.


SAFE AT HOME


Safe At Home, which was funded by the former Department for Children, Schools and Families (now the Department for Education), aimed to help families tackle one of the UK’s most severe accident problems; at home accidents to children aged under five, which account for


an estimated 500,000 A&E visits across the UK each year.


The scheme installed free home safety equipment, including safety gates, fireguards and cupboard locks, in the homes of families in areas with the highest child accident rates in England. It also saw 4,300 local delivery providers trained and supplied with educational resources to help them talk to families about home safety, and more than 300,000 families with children under five received home safety advice and information during the two-year project.

INSPECTION CHARGES WILL HIT SMALL FIRMS HARDEST


Proposals to charge small firms for ‘material’ faults found during inspections by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) could damage relationships and may be seen as a way to raise revenue rather than improving compliance, says the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) in response to a recent consultation.


The HSE has proposed to extend its current systems of cost recovery to include a


fee for intervention, meaning an inspector will charge for the inspection and any subsequent actions when a material fault has been found, and it is estimated that for an inspection that results in a letter, the cost to business could be at least £750; an amount that could be extremely damaging to a small business, especially during difficult economic times.
