Under the Worker Protection Standard (WPS) as revised in 2015, specific information must be available to agricultural workers and pesticide handlers at all times during their working hours. Agricultural employers usually select a readily-accessible area, perhaps where workers check in/out for the day, where they change clothes, eat, etc. To learn more about the requirements, visit our central posting guide.
The new poster may be printed and distributed. There are several languages available:
PERC is collaborating with the National Pesticide Safety Education Center (NPSEC) to promote the sale of printed posters to help support pesticide safety education nationally.
Many thanks to the poster team!
