Interactive new RoSPA website goes live
Intended to help visitors with answers to questions such as "are employers responsible for fatigued workers driving home" or "what is meant by the morning after effect in relation to drink driving", the site – www.rospa.com - is intended to help fulfil the charity's aim of leading the way on accident prevention in the 21st century.
Easier to use, the site, which was designed and built by RoSPA's in-house web team, looks brighter and sharper than its predecessor. However it still provides plenty of life-saving information about preventing accidents including on the road.
A dedicated web zone for RoSPA members, which holds exclusive content including access to the Infocentre catalogue (which stores details of more than 28,500 documents), has also been integrated into the site.
Tom Mullarkey, RoSPA chief executive, said: 'This is a very exciting development that shows we're still at the cutting edge of saving lives and reducing injuries.
'It's vital that in the age of information technology we have a big, interactive presence on the web. Our previous website received 2.92million visits in the last year and we look forward to many more visitors in the future.
'Our aim has always been to advise and educate as many people as possible about the risks they face in everyday life. This website should help carry our messages into the homes and workplaces of millions of people who we hope will use it time and again as a valuable resource.'
