The Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) and its amendments provide for the protection of the health and safety of farmers and farm workers who may be exposed to pesticides. Reduced contact with the active ingredients and other components of pesticides is particularly important for people who mix, load, and apply pesticides. Personal protective equipment is one means by which contact with potentially harmful pesticides can be minimized. The Guidance Manual summarized here consolidates and extends literature information on the barrier effectiveness of protective materials to pesticides, the effect of personal protection equipment (PPE) on the productivity of pesticide handlers, heat stress associated with the use of PPE, and methods for decontamination of PPE. The Guidance Manual contains extensive appendices describing commercially available products.
