Preventing Accidental Poisoning

  • Household Chemicals & Pesticides
    Some of the most common household products, such as detergents, pesticides and bleaches, contain toxic ingredients and can be hazardous if ingested through the mouth, or if they come into contact with the eyes or skin.

    Prevention Tips:
    Always keep household chemicals and pesticides away from children's reach and sight. Do not store noxious products like cleaning detergents and roach baits together with food in the same cabinet.

    Because children associate cups and bottles with food and drink, never transfer household chemicals into unlabelled containers or mineral water bottles. Some substances in particular may resemble common everyday beverages, which can be ingested by mistake. For example, many people store leftover paint thinner in bottles, which is a bad idea - thinner looks exactly like water - and this can lead to accidental poisoning.

    Before applying pesticides, remove children and their toys from the area and keep them away until it is dry or as advised by the usage instructions on the label.
