New Resource on Respiratory Protection Decisions for Pesticide Applicators

Kerry Richards, Pesticide Safety Education Coordinator;

Due to the COVID – 19/Coronavirus pandemic, respirators will likely be in short supply, especially early in the next several months. EPA has indicated that label PPE requirements will remain as the legal requirement for pesticide applicators. Always follow the pesticide label instructions.

A Respirator Decision Making Tree infographic has been developed to help applicators determine if their needs for respiratory protection and regulatory compliance are being met. The Respirator Infographic and additional information regarding respiratory protection can be found at: If you answer YES to a question, follow the green arrow; if you answer NO to a question, follow the red arrow.
