March 18-24 is Poison Prevention Week, a week dedicated to raising awareness about the dangers of household poisons and educating parents and caregivers about poison-prevention techniques.
Every year, an estimated 1,280 children are hospitalized for serious injuries due to accidental poisoning. Most of these poisonings, if not all, can be prevented by familiarizing yourself and your family with proper storage, disposal and monitoring techniques.
Today, many homes contain products and chemicals that may cause serious harm to children. Some of these products may be an obvious hazard, but others are common and you might not even realize they are dangerous. That’s why we have assembled the resources below, with the help of our partners at SafeKids Canada, About Kids Health and the Ontario Poison Centre, to help keep your family safe and your chemicals secure.
Accidental poisoning is preventable. So join in and take part in Poison Prevention Week by sharing these guides and resources with your friends, family and colleagues.
Let’s keep those chemicals out of sight and locked up tight.
