Presentation Overview:

Accidental release or indiscriminate discharge of pesticides and pesticide wastes into the environment can harm people and contaminate soil, sediment, surface water and groundwater. Responding to these incidents can pose unique concerns because most pesticides are designed to harm or kill pests, and can similarly harm or kill people. This is a 3-hour webcast training that provides practical information on the characteristics of common pesticides and pesticide formulations, human health and ecological hazards associated with sources of pesticide exposure, environmental fate of pesticides, identification and use of chemical–specific information, legal and regulatory considerations and emergency response involving pesticide incidents.

The target audience for this course is new and mid-career EPA OSCs with an interest in learning about reasonable steps to respond quickly and decisively to threats posed by accidental release or indiscriminate discharge of pesticides and pesticide wastes. This course assumes some CERCLA response experience and is well suited to OSCs with 2 to 7 years of experience, or any OSC with a specific interest in a response involving pesticides. The webcast should also be of interest to State and local emergency responders.
