About this event

Worker Protection Standard (WPS) Webinar

Wednesday, June 2, 2021

3:00 pm to 4:30 pm

This training can be used to satisfy Section 18 WPS requirements for the use of Priaxor Xemium on coffee for the management of coffee leaf rust.

Did you know that a farm worker who enters a field (within 30 days of last pesticide application), who handles, and/or applies pesticides, must be WPS trained annually? 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 and will cover the current Worker Protection Standard (WPS) provisions and requirements as well as any new rule changes. This online webinar is free and open to all agricultural employers, owners, managers, and their employees.

There may be a short quiz at the end of the presentation. To receive credit for this training, you must complete the webinar, HDOA worker and/or handler forms and include the CODEWORD given during the presentation, and submit the forms. Further instructions will be provided during the presentation.

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