NCDOI: Safe Kids: Poison Prevention for Teachers

This year Poison Prevention Awareness Week runs from March 16 through March 22. Find a bulleted page from Safe Kids North Carolina to check your general awareness of poison prevention. It targets primarily younger children, but there are some warnings to remember for teen-agers. The great value of this site is the access provided for additional information. You can link to the web page for the Poison Prevention Week Council for additional ideas and materials for the week. There is also a PDF printable poster specifically reminding teens not to share pills. The extensive teacher’s guide to poison prevention is a program from Washington state, and the link to the National Capital Poison Center has lots of information on poison prevention. We can’t be complacent about the common poisons in our environment.March 17http://www.ncdoi.com/osfm/safekids/Poison%20Prevention%20for%20Teachers.aspx?sec=poison
