WPS Compliance Resources

April 9, 1999

Are you looking for concise information about the Worker Protection Standard provisions? Are you not sure how it all applies to you, or how to proceed if it does? Consider accessing the University of Illinois Pesticide Safety Education web site (http://www.aces.uiuc.edu/~pse; select "Other Resources"). At this site, you can read and print the following informational publications:

  • "The WPS: A Quick Guide to the Rule" (new trifold introductory brochure)

  • "The Worker Protection Standard in Illinois" (new 19-page summary of EPA's "How to Comply Manual")

  • "The WPS Resource Guide for Illinois Agricultural Employers" (recently revised)

If you do not have access to the Internet, stop by your local University of Illinois Extension office and ask for printed copies of these materials. You may have to pay a small fee for printing the document.--Bruce Paulsrud
