New Worker Protection Standard Poster

Facilities growing agricultural crops in the U.S. are subject to the federal Worker Protection Standard (WPS). The Pesticide Educational Resources Collaborative (PERC) has released a new poster which complies with the recently revised WPS. The poster is intended to be used at central locations and at certain decontamination sites. It will be required to be used by facilities subject to the WPS starting January 2, 2018.
