RoSPA (The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents)

A recently discovered collection of historical RoSPA safety posters, on public display for the first time.

Client

For almost 100 years, RoSPA has been quietly working behind the scenes to change both legislation and attitudes surrounding accidents. From the compulsory wearing of seatbelts, to the Cycling Proficiency Test and to the more recent ban on hand-held mobile phones behind the wheel, RoSPA has been instrumental in preventing millions of deaths and serious injuries in our society.

As a registered charity, RoSPA are committed to continuing this legacy of change. Through various activities – campaigning, carrying out research, influencing legislation, informing and educating, auditing and providing expert consultancy to businesses – RoSPA strive to achieve their mission: To save lives and reduce injuries.
