Worker Protection Standard (Pesticide Safety) Meeting on December 6th

The meeting will be held in Mt. Vernon from 10:00 until noon.  Full email from Josefina Magana is below:

“Over the last month the Division of Occupational Safety and Health(DOSH) has held several stakeholder meetings to inform the public and answer questions about rule changes regarding the Worker Protection Standard (Pesticide Safety) for workers and handlers; Chapter 296-307 WAC Safety Standards for Agriculture.

The meetings have been a great opportunity to obtain input from stakeholders. Based on comments we received so far, we believe future meetings will be more productive when stakeholders have draft language to review and discuss.  Moving forward, we would like to reschedule the upcoming Mt. Vernon stakeholder meeting to December 6, 2016, from 10:00 until 12:00 to give DOSH staff time to finalize and provide stakeholders with initial draft language. We will be scheduling additional meetings for Kennewick and Yakima soon after the first of the year.

Please RSVP if you wish to attend this meeting in order to ensure adequate room set-up. If you have any comments questions or concerns feel free to contact Sally Buckingham or Josefina Magana
