Handle means to mix, load, or apply pesticides; repair or clean equipment that was used for pesticides; repair or remove tarps (such as with a structural fumigation); or touch unrinsed pesticide containers. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
Pesticides can make you sick by moving into your body through your skin, mouth, eyes, or your lungs as you breathe. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
If a pesticide can hurt you or make you sick right away, that is an acute health effect. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
If you have to be exposed to a pesticide for a short period of time before it makes you sick, that’s called a chronic health effect. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
Most labels have a special word in capital letters on the front of the label. It tells you what the acute health hazard is.
The words you might see are:
- DANGER or DANGER-POISON, this pesticide is extremely harmful.
- WARNING, this pesticide is moderately harmful.
- CAUTION, this pesticide is less harmful, but still can make you sick.
True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
The label provides you with specific information on first aid, personal protective equipment, environmental hazards, storage and disposal, and how to safely and correctly apply the pesticide to the listed sites. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
After you read the label, look at your application situation (including your equipment and the weather conditions) for things like sensitive plants, people, buildings, or schools around you. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
If you apply pesticides outdoors, if there is no wind it can be dangerous to apply pesticides because pesticides can stay in the air. When the wind picks up, the pesticides can move with the air. Too much wind can make pesticides drift onto people and make them sick, or onto sensitive plants and cause damage. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
Moving opened pesticide containers before the pesticide is mixed with water, and hand-pouring pesticides from their containers, are the most dangerous parts of working with pesticides. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
Your employer must give you personal protective equipment when it is required by the label or California’s regulations. Your employer must also inspect, clean, repair, and replace this protective equipment, and ensure that it is stored in a pesticide-free place. You must properly wear the equipment provided. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
You must wear eye protection when you mix, load, or apply pesticides; clean or repair equipment that was used for pesticides; and anytime the label says so unless you wear prescription eye glasses. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
The label will tell you what type of protection to wear. If it does not, the eye protection can be safety glasses (with temple and brow protection), goggles, a face shield, or a full-face respirator. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
Regular eyeglasses and sunglasses DO NOT provide enough protection. Pesticides can easily get around these glasses and into your eyes. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
You must wear gloves when you mix, load, or apply pesticides; clean or repair pesticide application equipment; and anytime the label says so. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
The label will tell you what type of gloves you must wear. If the label does not say what type you need, you must use gloves made of chemical-resistant material like nitrile or neoprene. You cannot use thin disposable gloves when applying pesticides. Never wear fabric-lined or leather gloves unless the label or other rules specifically say you may. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
In a few cases, the label may tell you not to wear gloves. If it does, do not wear them unless you want to keep your hands clean. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
You must wear a respirator anytime the label or your employer requires one, or if you are mixing, loading, or applying most pesticides on California’s list of Minimal Exposure Pesticides. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
You must wear clean coveralls (or a long-sleeved shirt and long pants) provided by your employer each day that you work with pesticides with either the word DANGER or WARNING on the label, unless the label says you cannot wear coveralls. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
Your employer must give you other chemical-resistant clothes and equipment (such as a suit that covers your body, an apron, foot and head protection) if the label or other rules call for them. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
If it is hot outside, wearing a chemical-resistant suit that covers your body may make you so hot that you can get sick. If the label or DPR’s rules say you must wear a chemical-resistant suit, then you must not work in temperatures above 80°F (27°C) during the day or 85°F (29°C) at night. True or FalseCorrectIncorrect
