WPS and Respirator Use

The Worker Protection Standard rules regarding the use of respirators has changed and will need to be followed to avoid compliance issues during FDACS inspections.  Here is a very good fact sheet by Dr. Fred Fishel (UF) with the specifics on what has changed and how to comply with the new standards.  Remember that employees applying granular pre-emergence herbicides that require dust masks under personal protective equipment will need to follow these rules as well.  Here is a link to the fact sheet.  http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/pdffiles/PI/PI27200.pdf
