Pesticide Safety and Handling
All employees are required to undergo training for pesticide safety and handling. After you have watched the four videos, take the quiz below.
As a reminder, pesticide application information, including date, time and re-entry interval for TFREC grounds and orchards is posted in the hallway above the mailboxes (Overley Building) and online: http://www.tfrec.wsu.edu/pages/Admin/Pesticide_Applications. It is YOUR responsibility to check the current spray information before working in the field.
Please take the Pesticide Safety quiz.
