Make Your Home Safer

The National Poison Prevention Week Council recommends:

- Keep all household chemical products and medicines out of reach and out of sight of youngsters, preferably locked up when not in use. Medicines and household chemicals on kitchen counters or bathroom surfaces are very accessible to young hands. Make sure any medicines visitors may bring into your home are kept safely away from children.

- When using toxic products, never let them out of your sight, even if you must take them along when answering the telephone or the doorbell. Most poisonings occur when the product is in use.

- Store all medicines separately from household products, and store all household chemical products away from food.

- Keep products in their original containers with the original label intact. Read the label before using.

- Always leave the light on when giving or taking medicines.
