 The Environmental Protection Agency revised the Worker Protection Standard for agricultural
 pesticides in August 1992. The revised Worker Protection Standard requires that agricultural workers
 be given training in basic pesticide safety.

 Protect Yourself from Pesticides:  Guide for Agricultural Workers was developed by the Environmental
 Protection Agency; it presents all of the information required for training under the Worker Protection
 Standard. Some States and Tribes have additional requirements for pesticide safety training for
 agricultural workers. Contact the State and Tribal agency responsible for pesticide enforcement in your
 area to obtain information needed to comply with all State or Tribal training requirements.

 There are other materials about the Worker Protection Standard that are being developed by EPA.  They
 include a safety poster, a handbook on pesticide safety for pesticide handlers, and a manual for
 agricultural employers.  For more information about safety training and about the revised Worker
 Protection Standard, contact
