2020 Clinician's Guide to EPA's Worker Protection Standard
The Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Worker Protection Standard (WPS)protects agricultural workers from the health risks associated with pesticides. The WPS requires agricultural employers to comply with minimum safety precautions when using pesticides on farms and in nurseries, greenhouses or forests. Requirements include: training of workers handling pesticides or working in treated areas, provision of adequate personal protective equipment (PPE), communication of information about work areas recently treated with pesticides and when it is safe to re-enter these areas, and in case of emergency, availability of decontamination facilities and provision of medical assistance. The following guide reflects the WPS provisions currently in effect, which were last updated in 2015.

The Migrant Clinicians Network’s (MCN) mission is to promote the health of farmworkers by providing a framework for professional development to clinicians and other healthcare providers. MCN responds to the expressed needs of clinicians in the field who serve farmworker families, the issues voiced by farmworkers themselves as they are interviewed and known by the representative members of MCN, and the strategic initiatives of the federal and public health communities as they impact migrant health. Monographs are one mechanism used by MCN to address gaps between medical care knowledge and migrant health practice. Acute, chronic, and preventive care needs of farmworkers require the clinician and health care community to recognize interrelationships between biological risk factors, environmental exposures, social and cultural components, political and economic realities, and occupational characteristics.

Please feel free to send responses, comments, thoughts, and ideas to the listserv administrator firstname.lastname@example.org.
