Pesticides can be hazardous if not used safely. Pesticides can enter the body in three ways--by mouth, through the skin and eyes, and through inhalation (breathing into the lungs).
READ labels carefully--one section of the label will tell you about the toxicity of the product when it enters the body.
Please see the OSH Answers series on Pesticides for more information about how to work safely with pesticides, first aid, labels, re-entry time, etc.
There are many tips in other Landscaping OSH Answers documents.
Add a badge to your website or intranet so your workers can quickly find answers to their health and safety questions.
