Pesticide awareness

All staff who work on a farm will be concerned about the use of toxic chemicals at their workplace.  Pack-house and office staff may not have any practical experience or training in the issues surrounding safe use of pesticides.  It is important for these staff to be aware of the measures taken by the farm to protect workers and the environment from any potentially harmful effects arising from the use of pesticides.  This training is aimed at mitigating any unreasonable fears of pesticide poisoning and create a more sensible attitude to pesticides. It should be combined with other training courses on Safe Use of Pesticides and Calibration of Spray Equipment.
