WPS Training Videos

Under the Worker Protection Standard (WPS) as revised in 2015, agricultural workers and pesticide handlers must be trained annually in pesticide safety. These videos have been EPA-approved for this purpose. Trainers must be qualified, and the training must be delivered (orally or audio-visually) in a manner that workers can understand. Exempt: Currently certified pesticide applicators and certified crop advisors are exempt from WPS worker and handler training. Any worker who has been trained as a handler does not need to receive worker training.
