Pesticides can cause serious skin and respiratory complaints. The law says that employers must take every precaution to protect employees from the effect of pesticides.
In tree work pesticides are used in a number of different ways. Many pesticides are applied using hand-held equipment such as a knap sack sprayer. Alternatively, workers involved with planting trees may plant saplings that have been pre-treated with pesticide products.
Below are the main pesticide training courses that Land Skills Training and Assessments offer.
