Worker Protection Standard Trainings (WPS) across Montana (Pesticides)
Description:

Individuals must follow WPS requirements if a pesticide application is for the purpose of managing an agricultural commodity on an agricultural site and the pesticide has an agricultural use requirements box. Individuals meeting these conditions should pay special attention to the new 2015 WPS requirements. In an effort to update the agricultural community, the MSU Pesticide Education Program (PEP) & Montana Department of Agriculture (MDA) are coordinating three regional Worker Protection Standard trainings across Montana. These half day programs are designed to deliver WPS guidance to owners of agricultural establishments, while training workers and/or handlers according to WPS standards.
