Is your business compliant with revised worker protection standards? The Federal Worker Protection Standards (WPS) protects agricultural workers and pesticide handlers by reducing their risk from pesticide exposure. WPS was revised in 2015, and phased-in compliance begins January 2, 2017. These FREE workshop will provide employers and managers what they need to bring their WPS Program in compliance with the new requirements, including changes in training, restrictions during applications, personal protective equipment, decontamination supplies, record keeping and more. Advanced registration is required. Register early as seating is limited. Register online at: go.osu.edu/workerprotection or call 614-292-4070. All registered participants will receive the WPS Employer Compliance Manual.
