New WPS Rules Take Effect in January
The Worker Protection Standard Rules will be changing January 2, 2017 and everyone that has been trained as a trainer will need to be re-certified in a Train-the-Trainer Training class. If you are a Private Applicator you can still train workers and handlers but you should know what the new rules are as there are some significant rule changes taking place. Hillsborough County Extension will be conducting a class on November 10, 2016 at the Florida Strawberry Growers’ Association office located at 13138 Lewis Gallagher Rd, Dover, FL to update you on rule changes. The class will be from 1:00 -4:30 pm. If you are a Private Applicator we will have 4 CEUs available in the Private category. If you would like to attend please give Alicia Whidden a call at 813-744-5519 ext 54134. The class will cost $25.00 and will include refreshments and printed materials.
