ACCREDITED BY

Overview

We all know that pesticides are used to kill or control pests in residences, agriculture and other productive activities. However, it should also be understood that pesticides are equally harmful for humans and could lead to pesticide poisoning, respiratory difficulties, cancer and in some cases even death. Therefore, pesticides have to be administered with lengthy precautions and this Diploma in Pesticide Safety – Level 3 (USA Standards) will show you exactly how to do it. All you need to enroll in this course is a qualification at level 2 or above in a related disciple.

This informative course will compare between pesticides and insecticides to enlighten you on the ways they can enter the body and the routes of exposure. This course will also discover the various pesticides that are used in the production of agricultural plants and in public health, after which the course curriculum will guide you on how to handle and administer them in a proper and safe manner.

This course will present the learners with the worker protection standard requirements that has to be followed by each and every individual in agricultural establishments and commercial pesticide handling establishments. You will also get to learn about pesticide poisoning and on how to handle such an emergency, all the while learning the various pesticide terminology that might prove worthwhile in your agricultural, forestry, farming or healthcare career.
