Kidsafe NSW promotes child injury prevention and education in an effort to preserve and protect the lives of our children.

Poisoning Prevention

Every year thousands of children need medical care for poisoning from products commonly found in and around the home. Most accidental poisonings occur to children younger than five, with children aged one to three most at risk. The Poisons Information Centre receives many phone calls from concerned parents or carers of young children.
