Lookout Poison Checklist

The home regions given below are the most common site of accidental poisonings. Follow this checklist to learn how to correct situations that may lead to poisonings.


All harmful products in the cupboards must have child-resistant caps. Products like wood polishes, drain cleaners and some Kitchen cleaners should have safety packaging to keep little children from accidentally opening the packages.

Check all slightly harmful products in their original storage place. There may be two dangers if products hasn't stored in their original storage place. Labels on the original box often give first aid information if someone should break up the product. And if products are stored in containers like drinking glasses or pop bottles, someone may think it is food and drink it.

Check all harmful products stored away from eating foods? If harmful products are placed next to food, someone may accidentally get a food and a mix up poison and ingest the poison.

Must check all slightly harmful products have been put up high and out of reach to your baby. The best way to prevent poisoning is making sure that it's impossible to find. And best poison protection is that to lock all cabinets that hold dangerous products.


Do you know that medicines can be poison if it used improperly? Many children are poisoned each year by overdoses of aspirin and other medicine. If aspirin can poison, just think of how many other poisons might be in your medicine cabinet. Think on it.

So aspirins and other harmful products always keep away from child-resistant. Aspirins and most prescription drugs come with child-resistant caps. Whenever you buy any medicine always check to see child-resistant cap on it and that they are properly secured. Check your prescriptions before leaving the pharmacy to make sure the medicines are in child-resistant packaging. These caps have been shown to save the lives of your baby/children.

Check Have you thrown out all out-of-date medicine? As medicines get older, the chemicals inside them can change. So what was once a good medicine may now be a dangerous poison? Flush all old drugs down the toilet. Rinse the container well, then discard it.

Check all medicines in their original containers with the original labels. Prescription medicines may or may not list factor. The prescription number on the label will, however, allow rapid identification by the pharmacist of the ingredients should they not be listed. The original label and container are very important for what you're taking, because all aspirin looks a lot like poisonous roach tablets.

Check your vitamins or vitamin/mineral supplements contain iron; are they in child-resistant packaging? Most people think of vitamins and minerals as foods and, therefore, non-toxic, but a few iron pills can kill a child.

Did you know that many things in your store room area that can be consumed are dreadful poisons? Death may occur when people consume such everyday substances as charcoal lighter, paint thinner and remover, antifreeze and turpentine.
So please note down and check:

  • Do all these poisons have child-resistant caps?
  • Are they stored in the strongbox?
  • Are the original labels on the Box?
  • Make sure that no poisons are stored in drinking glasses or pop bottles?
  • Check all these harmful products locked up and out of sight and reach?

This is a level of poison protection by making sure that, whenever you buy slightly harmful products, they must have child-resistant cap and are kept out of sight and reach.
