A nation wide campaign for the prevention of accidents in the home accident prevention efforts in municipalities

Tidsskrift for den Norske Laegeforening 110(26): 3387-3390
A nation wide campaign for the prevention of accidents in the home accident prevention efforts in municipalities
A nation-wide campaign aimed at preventing accidents in the home is being implemented in Norway. 95% of the municipalities acknowledge having received information material from the campaign, 33% report having established accident prevention committees, and 26% report having introduced preventive measures as a result of this national campaign. The study indicates that accidents are not recognized as yet as a major health problem in many municipalities. Identification of accidents as a health problem seems to be an important factor in the preventive efforts. To enhance further accident prevention efforts it seems important to increase awareness of accident as a health problem, and to increase the involvement of key personnel within the community.
