People who become involved in activities requiring exposure to pesticides should be aware of the potential hazards involved as a result of absorption of toxic compounds. If a person is knowledgeable about such hazards and understands the importance of taking proper precautions, he can do much to insure the safety of himself and others. Although illnesses resulting from over-exposure to toxic compounds do occur among applicators and other workers, most are a result of carelessness or accident. Experience has shown that if proper precautionary measures are observed and directions on the pesticide label are followed, even the more toxic compounds can be used safely. Exposure to less toxic compounds should not be ignored.
