Worker Protection Standard (WPS) Train the Trainer

Monday, January 30, 2017

9:00 AM – 4:30 PM (Spanish)

On November 2, 2015, EPA revised the WPS, making significant changes to the rule’s requirements. The WPS requires that owners and employers on agricultural establishments provide protections to workers and handlers from potential pesticide exposure. They must be trained on pesticide safety. By attending a EPA-approved Train-the-Trainer course, an individual becomes qualified to train pesticide handlers and field workers as required by statue.
