Pesticide Safety Training Offered

April 5, 2019 - Justin Stahl

MSU's Worker Protection Standard (WPS), which ensures the safe work in areas of pesticide application, has been added to the Ability compliance training system. This includes many agricultural sites, as well as the Greenhouse and some research centers.

Prior to entry into any area that may have been recently treated with pesticides, you must complete both a classroom training and training at that specific site. Be sure to register for the track to get the annual classroom training reminder and to access contact information for each site.

As part of the move to the Ability training system, licensed applicators who conduct training will be given Trainer security role in the system to set-up their own training events and to enter completion records.
