P&G Announces Collaboration With American Academy Of Pediatrics To Continue Household Safety Awareness And Education Program

On the heels of the launch of its Safe Home consumer education campaign, The Procter & Gamble Company (NYSE:PG) announced today a collaboration with the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the world’s premier pediatric organization dedicated to the health and well-being of infants, children, adolescents and young adults.

The two organizations will work together to equip parents with information and tools they need to keep their homes and families safe. In the spirit of National Poison Prevention Week, much of this effort will focus on education surrounding the correct use and storage of household cleaning and fabric care products.

“P&G is and always will be fully committed to ensuring the health and safety of the consumers who use our products, particularly those with young children in their home,” said Alex Keith, Vice President P&G Fabric Care, North America. “Our collaboration with the AAP is an excellent way to reach parents with educational information from their most trusted source—their pediatrician.”

The P&G and AAP efforts are designed to keep parents informed and prepared. AAP content containing general home safety tips, as well as specific information on how to keep various areas of the home safe and secure, will be made available to parents and other caregivers on HealthyChildren.org, the AAP’s parenting website. Information on these topics also will be available on the Safe Home hub of P&G’s “ Home Made Simple” website. P&G will support distribution of AAP educational patient brochures to pediatricians across the country as another resource to help inform parents.

“The goal of this collaboration is to help keep families as safe and healthy as possible,” said Kyran Quinlan, MD, MPH, FAAP, Chair-Elect of the AAP Council on Injury, Violence and Poison Prevention. “One way to do this is by making sure that consumers have the information and tools they need to use and store products correctly and safely. This campaign will help to reach as many parents as possible with these resources.”
