Who’s concerned with your safety? 2 October 2007

The Public Health Directorate of the Department of Health and Social Security is co-ordinating an Accident Prevention Seminar, taking place at Keyll Darree Education Centre, Braddan on the 8th October 2007.

The event will bring together injury prevention professionals across Government to share experience and best practice in the field of accident/injury prevention. Mrs Pam Crowe MLC will open the seminar and welcome delegates to the event.

Peter Cornall, Leisure and Safety Manager for the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) will give the keynote speech at the Islands first Accident Prevention Seminar, taking place at Keyll Darree Education Centre on the 8th October 2007.

The multi-agency event will raise awareness of accidents, incidents and injuries that occur in a variety of settings and look at the interventions that can assist in reducing the number of unintentional injuries to the Island’s population.

Dawn Henley Senior Health Promotion Officer said

“Most accidents and injuries are preventable whether they occur in the home, at work, on the road or during our leisure time. Accidents can have a devastating affect leaving people to cope with bereavement, disability or facing the consequences of their actions, which may have caused harm to others. The Public Health Directorate is delighted to be hosting this event and hope that delegates will go away with the knowledge and understanding of the importance of injury reduction in all aspects of daily living, as well as measures they can put in place to reduce these incidents.”

Inspector Derek Flint, Isle of Man Constabulary, Head of Roads Policing Unit added:

“This is a real opportunity for Government Agencies and the Voluntary Sector to re-double efforts across the board to make the Isle of Man an even safer place to live”.
