As Pesticide Applicators, we are continually exposed to pesticides. Many of our pesticides may either an immediate serious effect if we contact it or may have a long term effect as a chronic exposure. With today's personal protective equipment, it is easy to limit your exposure to pesticides during mixing and loading, application and clean-up. Choosing the correct and appropriate equipment is important. This seminar looks at the equipment available, materials and features of safety equipment. Laundering of protective equipment is also discussed.
