Errol Taylor
CEO Royal Society Prevention of Accidents and Chairman EuroSafe, Birmingham, UK

Errol was appointed Chief Executive in July 2017, having initially joined RoSPA in 2004 and being Deputy Chief Executive since 2006.

His evidence-based approach aims to reduce the toll of injury by empowering individuals and organisations to be "as safe as necessary, not as safe as possible", wherever they are and whatever they are doing. Along with RoSPA colleagues, he created a new epidemiological measure - the Preventable Year of Life Lost (PrYLL) - and was the lead author of RoSPA's influential suite of Big Book(s) of Accident Prevention.

A keen proponent of partnership working, Errol is the non-executive chairman of EuroSafe, a member of the National House Building Council (NHBC) and an adviser to both the National Fire Chiefs Council (NFCC) and the National Water Safety Forum (NWSF). He played a leading role in multi-million-pound projects Safe At Home and the Child Safety Education Coalition.

A fellow of both the Institute of Directors and the Royal Society for Public Health, Errol is qualified as a chartered director with an MBA and an engineering degree.
