Free Worker Protection Standard Publication

News Article

Training manuals and safety posters are among the free Worker Protection Standard publications you can order from ISU's Extension Distribution office.

The complete details of the Standard are contained in PAT-12, The Worker Protection Standard for Agricultural Pesticides--How to Comply manual. This EPA manual provides the information you need to comply with the federal standard that went into effect January 1, 1995. Every employer of agricultural crop production workers and pesticide handlers should have one.

Two other Worker Protection Standard publications may be used to train workers and handlers. They are PAT-16, Protect Yourself from Pesticides--Guide for Agricultural Workers, and PAT-17, Protect Yourself from Pesticides--Guide for Pesticide Handlers. The listing below describes other available publications.
