  • Description:
    This standard applies only to occupations in pesticide manufacturing and formulating. This includes manufacturing, formulating, packaging, mixing, blending, or repackaging of any pesticide active ingredient. Occupational exposure is defined as contact with any pesticide or other chemical during the manufacture and formulation of pesticides. Pesticide is used as a generic term meaning any substance or mixture of substances intended for those uses described by definition in the Federal Environmental Pesticide Control Act: preventing, destroying, repelling, or mitigating any pest and regulating, defoliating, or desiccating any plant. All pesticide active ingredients registered with the EPA are covered by this recommended standard. Other chemicals to which workers are potentially exposed in pesticide manufacturing and formulating operations (such as intermediates, impurities, diluents, emulsifiers, carriers, inerts, and propellents) are also covered by the provisions of this standard, as well as by provision in any separate standards applicable for such chemicals, eg, xylene. in the case of conflicts between this recommended standard and any existing standard, NIOSH recommends that the more stringent standard apply.
