TN Pesticide Application Signs
Tennessee does not have any State laws regarding pesticide notification signs for ornamental and turf care application by commercial or residential pesticide control companies. It is advised that individuals and companies in this state follow the general EPA Guidelines below.
EPA Guidelines for Pesticide Application:
“EPA’s Current Agricultural Worker Protection Standard (WPS) is a regulation published in 1992 that is aimed at reducing the risk of pesticide poisoning and injury among agricultural workers and pesticide handlers. The current WPS offers occupational protections to over 2 million agricultural workers (people involved in the production of agricultural plants) and pesticide handlers (people who mix, load, or apply crop pesticides) that work at over 600,000 agricultural establishments (farms, forests, nurseries and greenhouses). The WPS requires that owners and employers on agricultural establishments provide protections to workers and handlers from potential pesticide exposure, train them about pesticide safety, and provide mitigations in case exposures may occur.”
