Update on the Final Revision to the EPA's WPS for Agricultural Pesticides, Current Challenges in Compliance and Opportunities for the Industry

On September 28, 2015, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced final revisions to its worker protection standard. According to the EPA the revisions will “enhance the protections provided to agricultural workers, pesticide handlers, and other persons under the Worker Protection Standard (WPS) by strengthening elements of the existing regulation, such as training, notification, pesticide safety and hazard communication information, use of personal protective equipment, and the providing of supplies for routine washing and emergency decontamination.”

This session by our expert speaker, Erik R. Janus, will discuss in detail the recently finalized revisions to the Worker Protection Standard (WPS) for Agricultural Pesticides, and provide a critique of these changes and associated costs. It will also address the challenges and opportunities to industry with regard to compliance and implementation of the revised WPS.

This presentation, in addition to teaching you about upcoming regulatory compliance issues, will provide helpful hints and resources for all levels of experience.  Small companies or those newer to the field may benefit particularly from the knowledge imparted during the presentation.
