National Poison Prevention Week

National Poison Prevention Week


March 21st – March 27th, 2021

National Poison Prevention week (NPPW) was established in 1961 to call attention to the dangers of poisonings. Safety interventions, such as child resistant closures and poison prevention campaigns, have saved thousands of lives. Poisonings can happen at any age and all people can benefit from poison prevention education. In an effort to raise awareness, the Utah Poison Control Center (UPCC) joins poison centers around the country to observe NPPW. Below are some ways to promote NPPW in your home and community and to spread the poison prevention message.
