Complying With The EPA Worker Protection Standard
Training information concerning the WPS has been made available here:
The WPS was developed by the EPA to reduce the possibility of agricultural worker injuries should they come in contact with potentially hazardous pesticides. Key components of the WPS include:
- Informing employees of potential hazards associated with products the may handle or come in contact with.
- Protecting employees from coming in contact with potentially hazardous pesticides.
- Mitigating any instances where an employee has been exposed to a potentially hazardous product.
