As of January 2, 2017, new pesticide safety requirements are in effect for employers and employees working in the production of agricultural plant commodities. Additionally, as of March 1, 2018, updates that expand the pesticide safety training topics for fieldworkers and pesticide handlers and clarify employer responsibilities are in effect.
