Online home safety check
Most fires in the home start accidentally. Understand why fires start and what you can do to prevent them. Complete an online home safety check for family and friends too.
Every year, in the UK, around 400 people die from drowning as a result of an accident in or around water.
Read our advice for staying safe near open or flood water.
Half of accidental drownings in the UK occur when people didn't intend to go in the water, so simple steps to raise awareness of the risks around water and how they can be reduced will help prevent these deaths.
