Use Poisons Safely

· Before you use a poison, read the label on the bottle.

· While you are using a poison, never leave it out where a child may get to it.

· After you use a poison, put it back in a locked cabinet. Make sure the bottle is closed tightly.

· Never call medicine “candy.” A child may eat the medicine thinking it is candy.

· Do not take medicine in front of children or give medicine to one child while another is watching. Children may be tempted to take the medicine later, when you are not watching.
