Worker Protection Standard Compliance

The Worker Protection Standard (WPS) is a federal law requiring employers to protect their workers and handlers from exposure to pesticides applied on forests, ranches, farms and greenhouses. WPS is enforced by the US Environmental Protection Agency and in Virginia by the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. WPS has some very specific requirements that employers need to adhere to in order to avoid violating the law. This section provides information on this rule and compliance assistance.
