The mission of Spray Safe is “To encourage the safe application of agricultural chemicals through education and farmer to farmer communication and cooperation”. This is a free half day intensive training program, which offers Continuing Education Units for eligible employees and course work that focuses on the prevention of pesticide exposure incidents. It is also an excellent opportunity to improve communication among growers, chemical applicators and farm employees. There will be live demonstrations in English and Spanish on the topics of field worker safety; equipment calibration and maintenance; laws and regulations; and more. All agriculture employees are encouraged to attend.
