The Agriculture Pesticide Safety Poster provides hazard communication and pesticide safety information for employees who work in agricultural settings where pesticides are used, such as fieldworkers or pesticide handlers.

- General Information about pesticides and the hazard communication program

The Agriculture Pesticide Safety Poster is compliant with EPA requirements for pesticide safety information posters under the Worker Protection Standard (40 CFR 170), effective January 2, 2018. Agricultural employers are required to display, maintain, and provide access to pesticide safety information posters if a) agricultural workers or pesticide handlers are on the establishment, and b) a pesticide product has been used, or a restricted entry-level interval (REI) for pesticide has been in effect, within the past 30 days.
The Agriculture Pesticide Safety Poster must be posted:
- In a central location on the farm or in the nursery or greenhouse where it can be readily seen and read by workers; or in a location in or near the forest in a place where it can be readily seen and read by workers and where workers are likely to congregate or pass by, such as at an equipment storage site.
- At permanent decontamination sites.
- At sites where decontamination supplies are being provided at locations and in quantities to meet the requirements for 11 or more workers or handlers.
