WPS "Train the Trainer" Workshop

UNH School of Law, 2 White St, Concord, NH

Pesticide license recertification credits: to be announced

 

 

Registration & Fees: $50 (includes lunch) Register here!

 

Last Day to Register: April 16th 2017.

 

Description: Under the new requirements of the federal Worker Protection Standard (WPS), farm workers and pesticide handlers must receive annual mandatory pesticide safety training from a qualified trainer before they begin work. In New Hampshire (NH), a qualified pesticide safety trainer means a certified pesticide applicator who has been designated by the division, pursuant to Pes 1103.04, as being knowledgeable in the “Worker Protection Standard” and competent to train workers and handlers in safe working practices involving pesticides. Attending this Train-The-Trainer course for agricultural workers and pesticide handlers will meet NH’s standard of training for the train the trainer course, which is a higher standard than that of EPA’s. This training will also provide an update for those who are already considered WPS trainers in New Hampshire.  Information presented will focus on the expanded training requirements of the WPS, which includes information about pesticide residues, the potential health effects of pesticide exposure, and how to avoid bringing pesticide residues home. Participants will be provided access to additional training materials that have been EPA approved for training workers and handlers.

Who should attend? Those individuals who already have a WPS Certification on their license (Commercial and or Private applicators), individuals who would like a refresher on WPS and those individuals who might be considering testing to become either a Private or Commercial Applicator in a WPS related category.

4-H Outdoors Club - General Interest Meeting
Wednesday, 04/19/2017 (06:00 PM - 07:30 PM)

There will be a general interest meeting on Wednesday, April 19 at the UNH Cooperative Extension Office in Conway for youth and adults interested in participating in an outdoor sports 4-H club.  This club will have a conservation focus and youth will have an opportunity to explore projects and activities such as shooting sports, hunting, fishing, orienteering, animal tracking and more.  This meeting is also looking to identify adults interested in helping out. There are several ways to help out, from just being at a club meeting to support 4-H volunteers and youth, to leading activities as a project leader.  If people don’t feel they have any specific knowledge to share, we’re always looking for people with great organizational skills to help coordinate meeting times and share club news.  Volunteer support will be an important part of the growth of this new club.
