PSEP Objectives


The purposes of the Pesticide Safety Education Program are:

  • to help assure the proper, effective, and safe use as well as storage and disposal of pesticides;
  • to assist both private and commercial and noncommercial applicators in meeting the initial and continuing standards of certification to apply restricted use pesticides;
  • and to address adverse risks associated with pesticide misuse and consequences of pesticide drift. Emphasis should be placed on personal safety, protection of the environment, prevention of pesticide drift, endangered species, water quality, and food safety.
