Workplace Safety/Industrial Hygiene

Back to Pesticides and Human Health Information

DPR’s industrial hygienists evaluate pesticide products and labeling and recommend control methods, when needed, to provide adequate protection for pesticide users and others who may be exposed. Our industrial hygienists conduct workplace safety evaluations and onsite monitoring consultations following exposure incidents. They also work with county agricultural commissioners to develop safety measures applicable to pesticide application. They consult with growers, handlers, industry, worker advocates, and private citizens on matters of engineering controls, administrative controls (for example, personal protective equipment, and airborne monitoring methods).
