The newly updated manual, Seguridad en el manejo de pesticidas Manual de referencia para aplicadores privados  SEGUNDA EDICIÓN, is the study guide for the California Department of Pesticide Regulation certified private applicator examination and a handy reference for all farms.

Seguridad en el manejo de pesticidas Manual de referencia para aplicadores privados  SEGUNDA EDICIÓN

Farmers, foremen, managers, and employees will find this manual useful with its instructions on how to read pesticide labels, how to mix and apply pesticides, how to avoid pesticide hazards, and how to handle emergencies involving pesticides. The appendix includes a pesticide application checklist, resource lists, sample training forms for pesticide handlers and fieldworkers, and information on avoiding heat related illness. Review questions and answers are included for each chapter.

For farm operators, the Farm Profile section is a useful tool to identify health and environmental safety procedures that must be followed when using pesticides.
