Event description
'Take Action Today, Put Them Away' a programme to prevent poisoning from household products.

About this Event

We are excited to announce the launch of the 'Take Action Today, Put Them Away' campaign in Cornwall in collaboration with the Royal Society of the Prevention of Accidents. Every year in the UK, thousands of under 5s need medical care for poisoning from products found in and around the home. In Cornwall, hospital admissions for accidental poisonings in under 5s are higher than average. The majority of these injuries are preventable.

The aim of the campaign is to reach as many families with under 5s as possible. You will provide families with:

  • A magnetic pad that they can place on their fridge with the key messages of how to prevent accidental poisoning.
  • A safety checklist for parents to use around the home.

This launch event will be an opportunity to:

  • Network with childcare providers and health professionals
  • Find out more about the importance of accident prevention
  • Collect your campaign resources

*Please note, you do not have to be enrolled on our Healthy Under 5s programme to attend this event. It is open to all OFSTED registered early years childcare providers and health professionals in Cornwall.
