Standard Practices for Pesticide Applicators

This manual is meant for all industries, including agriculture, silviculture, structural pest control, wood treatment, aerial application, and landscaping. It focuses on the health and safety of workers who work with or near pesticides, re-enter treated areas, and/or handle treated materials. It is also useful for emergency response teams that deal with pesticide spills or fires, and first aid personnel and medical staff who deal with poisonings. In addition, the manual provides the basic information to build and implement a pesticide safety program.
