NICE public health guidance makes recommendations on the promotion of good health and the prevention of ill health.
This guidance was developed using the NICE public health intervention guidance process.
Tools to help you put the guidance into practice and information about the evidence it is based on are also available.
This is one of three pieces of NICE guidance published in November 2010 on how to prevent unintentional injuries among under-15s. A second publication covers strategies, regulation, enforcement, surveillance and workforce development and a third covers unintentional injuries in the home.
