This page aims to include occasional news of interest to those involved in visitor safety management and health and safety in the rural sectors. This might include new guidance from the Health and Safety Executive or other organisations, information about accidents or incidents, or the results of criminal or civil law cases of interest and relevance. For prosecutions, the main source material is HSE's press releases - the organisation on the receiving end may see things somewhat differently. News of published guidance from the VSCG (Visitor Safety in the Countryside Group) and the NTSG (National Tree Safety Group) is on a different page, given its significance.
