This guide was written to help private and commercial pesticide applicators and agricultural employers protect their workers from heat illness. It applies recognized heat stress management principles to the particular conditions of agriculture. Species emphasis has been given to the problems of controlling heat stress among pesticide handlers and early entry workers (workers who go into an area while entry is restricted after treatment with pesticides) who must wear protective gear. Some items will not be practical in every particular situation and agricultural establishments will need to adapt this program to their specific conditions of work.
