Be cautious poison safe


National Poisons Information Centre (NPIC) in Department of Pharmacology, AIIMS, New Delhi initiated an outreach project with a theme BE CAUTIOUS, BE POISON SAFE. This theme aims to increase awareness towards poisons and poisoning among general public including Children, Parents and Occupational Workers. It also intends to increase knowledge regarding poisons and poisonous substances and disseminate knowledge of poison prevention measures that can be practiced to reduce the risk of accidental poisonings. It also advocates to adopt safe practices and enforce effective poison control measures.

Awareness activities organized in the past by National Poisons Information Centre (NPIC), AIIMS, New Delhi

  • §Prevent poisoning in new millennium
  • §In case of poisoning- What to do
  • §Work book on chemical safety
  • §Potential poisons household substances: Safe handling and disposal
