The article discusses the importance of workers becoming well informed concerning the hazards involved in the use of pesticides if these chemicals are to be used safely. Information on the pesticide if these chemicals are to be used safely. Information on the pesticide label represents the results of research and legislation in the interest of safety to the user and the general public.
