Worker Protection Standard (WPS) Workshops - Sign Up
WPS is for farm owners, managers, their employees and contract workers who work in the field, handle, and/or apply (organic or non-organic) pesticides.
If you are interested in attending a future WPS workshop, please fill out the sign-up form below/to the right so we can determine need, languages, and locations.
Did you know that a farm worker who enters a field (within 30 days of last pesticide application), who handles, and/or applies pesticides, must be WPS trained annually? Many, if not all farms regardless of organic or non-organic farming methods, use pesticides if applying a product to kill a beetle, bug, fungus, mite, rat, or weed.
Learn how to keep yourself, your workers, customers, and the environment safe with the proper use, storage, handling, application, and disposal of pesticides.
These WPS classs are open to all employers, owners, managers, and agricultural employees on farms and orchards. The class will cover the current Worker Protection Standard (WPS) provisions and requirements.
This training can also be used to satisfy Section 18 WPS requirements for the use of Priaxor Xemium on coffee for the management of coffee leaf rust.
