Worker Protection Standard Meeting – May 10, 2017 1:00pm to 4:00pm at the Alson H. Smith, Jr. AREC in Winchester, VA

This is an opportunity to remind you of the revised Worker Protection Standards (WPS) and to provide resources from VDACS to address questions that you/we have on implementation of the revised standards. Personnel from VDACS’s Office of Pesticide Services, who are responsible for on-site compliance checks related to the WPS, will be on hand. These will be great opportunities to ask questions that you might have on the specific requirements of the revised WPS.
