Medicine Cabinets provide a safe and convenient storage place for all your medical essentials such as your first aid kit, headache tablets, creams and ointments. But homeowners need to take great caution when it comes to the safe and secure storage of prescribed medicines. Prescribed medicines can be extremely potent and are potentially lethal when they fall into the wrong hands. Particular care needs to be taken when there are small children around, who may think the tablets look like ‘sweets’, and have no idea of how dangerous they could be.
- Keep medicines and chemicals out of sight and reach of children, preferably in a locked cupboard
- Wherever possible, buy products in child resistant containers
- Always store chemicals in their original containers
- Dispose of unwanted medicines and chemicals safely
