Handler Restrictions (Minimum Age for Handlers)

Pesticide handlers are defined under the WPS as persons who mix, load or apply pesticides. Because handlers have direct contact with pesticides, they are more likely to be exposed to pesticides than agricultural workers doing other jobs.

Read the details of the proposed changes and the rationale before you comment.

All your comments are welcome but we have specific questions for you on changes to Restrictions for Handlers of Pesticides:
