Abstract

In manufacturing, formulating, and packaging, workers appear to be adequately protected through the surveillance and mandates of NIOSH, OSHA, and the various concerned state agencies. OSHA is developing a generic pesticide manufacturing standard designed to assure greater safety in the workplace. Shipping and warehousing workers are not yet adequately protected, particularly against accidental spillage or rupture of pesticide containers, with consequent contamination of vehicle, roadside, street, or warehouse. Pesticide fires deserve additional study and attention.
