Accident Prevention Among Children Is Simple
Keep Liquid Laundry Packets Out Of Reach
Practicing safe habits in the home is essential for keeping your loved ones safe in a space that matters most. The kitchen, family and laundry rooms are all spaces that shouldn’t be overlooked.
According to the American Association of Poison Control Centers, in 2016, poison centers received reports of 11,528 unintended exposures to highly-concentrated packets of laundry detergent by children 5 and younger. Proper use and storage of these liquid laundry packets is essential in preventing accidental exposures.
Throughout the year and during National Poison Prevention Week (NPPW) (March 19-25, 2017), ACI is committed to educating families on the proper use and storage of these convenient laundry packets. Accident prevention is simple: see below for useful resources to use during the week and beyond.
