When you studied to get your pesticide license you learned that pesticides can enter the body through four routes. Personal Protective Equipment protects you while working with pesticides and during other work activities where you may come in contact with pesticides. These include mixing pesticides, loading pesticides into application equipment tanks, applying pesticides and others.
This course will cover the proper selection and use of a variety of personal protective equipment. The fifty-minute course qualifies for the Oregon Department of Agriculture's pesticide applicator recertification and Washington State Department of Agriculture's pesticide recertification credit. This has been approved as a core class by the Oregon Department of Agriculture.
