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.
