At Work

Pesticide tank

Pesticide applicators either choose to apply chemicals or are required to use them in the course of their employment. If you use pesticides at work, learning as much as you can about the harmful effects of pesticides and effective alternatives can help you to advocate for healthier working conditions. Methods such as integrated pest management, green infrastructure and least-toxic alternatives may be implemented to replace hazardous pesticide handling. When changing company practices is not an option, always make sure conditions are as safe as possible.
