IVMA - First Aid for Pesticide Exposure
This presentation examines the acute health risks associated with the use of pesticides, based on their relative toxicity and the degree of exposure. While we cannot change the toxicity of a pesticide, we CAN change the extent of our exposure to it. In this presentation we will look at ways to reduce exposure through best practices such as; limiting the frequency and duration of pesticide use, selecting appropriate application technology and personal protective equipment, and other approaches to providing a safety-conscious work environment.

Even with all the safeguards and training in place, incidents still happen, and it is important that everyone involved is prepared to administer First Aid, should an accidental exposure occur. We will discuss the practical approaches to handling the common routes of exposure; however, this does not replace the need for proper Standard First Aid training through an authorized training provider.
