Pesticide Safety Information Series

Back to WH&S Programs and Services

DPR’s Worker Health and Safety Branch developed the Pesticide Safety Information Series (PSIS) leaflets primarily as a training aid for employees. California regulations require these documents to be part of pesticide handler and field worker training. The leaflets are in PDF format in English, Spanish and Punjabi.

The “A” series are for use in production agriculture, including fruit, vegetables, grains, nut and grape crops, trees grown for lumber, commercially-grown nursery stock, Christmas trees, and turf grown for sod. This excludes livestock, poultry and fish.

The “N” series are for use in poultry and fish-producing business, structural pest control, landscape and maintenance firms, rights-of-way maintenance organizations, or similar businesses.
