About this event

For farm owners, managers, their employees and contract workers who work in the field, handle, and/or apply (organic or non-organic) pesticides

Tuesday, June 8, 2021

10:00 am to 12:00 pm

Kona Cooperative Extension Service Conference Room

(79-7381 Mamalahoa Highway, Kealakekua, HI 96750)

Registration, masks, and 6’ social distancing are required and social gathering restrictions will be followed.

Become a qualified trainer of federal worker protection standards (WPS) by attending and participating in this Train-the-Trainer Workshop.

Did you know that a farmworker who enters a field (within 30 days of last pesticide application), who handles, and/or applies pesticides, must be WPS trained? Many, if not all farms regardless of organic or conventional farming methods, use pesticides if applying a product to kill a beetle, bug, fungus, mite, rat, or weed.

Learn how to keep yourself, your workers, customers, and the environment safe from improper use, storage, handling, application, and disposal of pesticides.

This workshop will be presented by Mr. Cal Westergard of HDOA. This 2-hour class is free and open to all agricultural farm employers, owners, managers, workers and employees. The class will cover the current WPS provisions and requirements as well as any new rule changes.

For more information about the class, contact the HDOA Pesticides Branch at (808) 974-4143 or 808-333-2844.
