Pesticides: When should agricultural workers enter a treated area?



If your workplace uses pesticides it’s important you know when and where.

Do not enter any field or area that has been recently sprayed for at least 12 hours.

If you think pesticides have been sprayed near you, get out of the area immediately.

When it’s safe to enter again, your supervisor will let you know.

It’s their responsibility to keep you safe.
