Train-the-Trainer Events in Oregon – 2016
The newly revised Worker Protection Standard (WPS) will go into effect on January 2, 2018, which will require annual training of agricultural workers and pesticide handlers by qualified WPS trainers. The WPS only applies to agricultural establishments that produce or maintain agricultural plants, AND use pesticide products with "AGRICULTURAL USE REQUIREMENTS" on the label.
See the “How to Comply” Manual for detailed information about the newly revised WPS.
OSU led a series of EPA-approved "Train-the-Trainer" courses in 2016-17. There are no further events planned at this time, but you can sign up to be notified about future training opportunities here.
