Educational Materials: Detailed Descriptions
Updated for WPS!
This training manual, revised in 1999 and written in the same easy-to-read style with comic-book illustrations as the 1991 edition, helps agricultural employers and other pesticide users train their employees who mix, load, apply, or otherwise handle pesticides. The manual includes updated information to help employers comply with California and federal pesticide training requirements.
The worker's packet is in an easy-to-read comic book style. One edition is in English and Spanish. Another edition is in Punjabi. The packet contains five 44-page pocketbook-size worker's editions.
