Worker Protection Standard (WPS) – Annual Pesticide Training information – The purpose of WPS is to reduce the risk of occupational pesticide exposure to agricultural workers and pesticide handlers. Elements of WPS include requirements for pesticide safety training, notification of pesticide applications, use of personal protective equipment, restricted-entry intervals after pesticide application, application exclusion zones, decontamination supplies, and emergency medical assistance. WPS covers workers and handlers employed on farms, forestry operations, nurseries and enclosed production areas, when pesticides that contain an Agricultural Use Requirement section that references WPS, are used on the establishment. The regulation requires that all UW-Madison faculty, staff, students or LTEs who will be doing field research, on Agricultural Research Stations, receive this training once a year.
