Worker Protection Standard (WPS) Training

According to the EPA, the “Worker Protection Standard (WPS) aims to reduce pesticide poisonings and injuries among agricultural workers and pesticide handlers. The WPS offers occupational protections to over 2 million agricultural workers and pesticide handlers who work at over 600,000 agricultural establishments.” Purdue is no exception. All individuals that receive a paycheck from Purdue University for work conducted in greenhouse, growth chambers/rooms, or field sites, where WPS is applicable, must take training. Training is offered through Radiological and Environmental Management (REM) on campus
