Back to Pesticide and Human Health Information

As of January 2, 2017, new pesticide worker safety requirements are in effect for employers and employees working in the production of agricultural commodities. California regulations have been updated to be consistent with the new federal Worker Protection Standard (WPS). As of March 1, 2018, additional updates expand the safety training topics for fieldworkers and handlers, and clarify employer responsibilities.
