The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has proposed changes to the agricultural Worker Protection Standard (WPS) to increase protections from pesticide exposure for agricultural workers. Proposed changes include increased frequency of mandatory trainings for farm workers, expanded mandatory posting of no-entry signs, minimum age requirement, and no-entry buffer areas surrounding pesticide-treated fields.
This presentation by Erik R. Janus will describe the recently proposed changes to the Worker Protection Standard (WPS) for Agricultural Pesticides, provide a critique of these changes and associated costs, and present the challenges and opportunities to industry with regard to compliance with and implementation of the revised WPS. In addition, it will provide helpful hints and resources to interact with the federal government during the rulemaking process.
