A collection of educational resources to help people on farms, orchards, forests, and other agricultural establishments comply with EPA’s revised Worker Protection Standard (WPS) regulation is now available online at http://pesticideresources.org/wps. The WPS Compliance Assistance Library provides a decision tree to help people determine their responsibilities, if any, under the WPS regulation. The online library also offers relevant information based on each person’s role within the WPS, including fact sheets, videos, and FAQs. A library of training materials, all available online, includes materials for training trainers, workers, and pesticide handlers.  

The WPS Compliance Assistance Library was produced by the Pesticide Educational Resources Collaborative (PERC) in collaboration with the EPA’s Office of Pesticide Programs.
