Poison Prevention Tips

Be Aware of the Poison Treatment Centres

STORE POISONS SAFELY (remember nothing is child proof)
* Keep household products and medicines securely locked up where children can't see or reach them.
* Keep all products in their original containers with lables.
* Use child resistant packaging.
USE MEDICINES, HOME PRODUCTS & POISONS SAFELY
* Read the lable. Follow the directions on medicines, household product and poisons carefully.
* If children are around take the product with you if you go to answer the phone or leave the room.
* Lock products up after using them.
* If it is medicine call it medicine not candy.
* Children learn by imitation. Take your medicine where children can not see you put them in your mouth.
TEACH CHILDREN TO ASK FIRST
* Poisons can look like food, drink or sweets. Teach children to ask first before eating, drinking or smelling anything
