The Ontario Pesticide Education Program has released a new manual for farm workers.

“If you work on a farm where pesticides are used, you need to know how to work safely around pesticides.  The information in this manual explains how farm workers can work safely on a farm that uses pesticides.”

It can be downloaded from their website (5 MB). For those without internet access or with a need for a print version, you can request the manual from OPEP:
Phone: 1-800-652-8573 (Ontario only) or 519-674-2230
Email: rcopep@uoguelph.ca
Mail: Ontario Pesticide Education Program, 120 Main St. E., Ridgetown, ON N0P 2C0

A Spanish version will be released very soon. Watch ONvegetables for updates.

Please ensure that all your farm workers are familiar with the information in this manual.
