Thursday, December 8th, will enter the record books as the first cold winter storm of 2016 for the Willamette Valley. But that didn’t stop our Worker Protection Standard (WPS) Train-the-Trainer team from traveling to Salem for its first ever training event. Our team was made possible by, and consists of personnel from, the Oregon Department of Agriculture, Oregon SAIF, Oregon OSHA, OHSU’s Oregon Institute of Occupational Health Sciences, and the National Pesticide Information Center housed at OSU. Thanks to SAIF, and especially to Kevin Pfau, for hosting this event and for providing lunch for attendees. Although several participants had to cancel due to the weather, we still had over 20 intrepid participants who completed the course and are now qualified to train agricultural workers and pesticide handlers on the new WPS standards. Our next training will take place next week in Eugene. Future WPS training sessions are scheduled to take place in Wilsonville, Hood River, Central Point, Klamath Falls, Ontario and Pendleton.
