EPA requires safety measures for soil fumigant pesticides to increase protections for agricultural workers and bystanders -- people who live, work, or otherwise spend time near fields that are fumigated. These measures are for the soil fumigants chloropicrin, dazomet, metam sodium/potassium, and methyl bromide.
This fact sheet summarizes requirements to protect fumigant handlers and other workers from fumigant exposures.
