Pesticide Safety

Pesticides are regulated under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA), the Pesticide Registration Improvement Act of 2003, the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, the Food Quality Protection Act of 1996 and the Endangered Species Act of 1973. Under these acts, the sale, distribution and use of restricted pesticides is regulated.

Employees that use restricted pesticides must have the required training and certification or be working under the direct supervision of a certified person.
