Introduction to EPA Worker Protection Standard for Pesticide Safety – ONLINE

May 9 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free

K-State Research & Extension will provide this free introductory training that will cover the basic principles of WPS regulation, compliance, and liability. The training will also review correct measures to manage the health risks from occupational exposure to pesticides. You must comply with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Worker Protection Standard if all three of the following apply:

– You own or manage an agricultural establishment (i.e., farm, orchards, nurseries, greenhouses, etc.), and

– Your work is directly related to producing agricultural plants, and

– WPS-labeled pesticides (herbicides, insecticides, fungicides, miticides, etc.) have been applied on your establishment within the last 30 days. WPS-labeled pesticides may be restricted-use pesticides or general-use pesticides. Look for the “Agricultural Use Requirements” box on the pesticide label

The zoom link for accessing the training online will be sent the day before the training. Follow the link to Eventbrite to reserve your spot.
