PESTICIDES TRAINING COURSES
Why do I need training?
Quite simply it is a legal requirement to be competent in the storage and use of pesticides in the work place. It is also a legal requirement to hold a Level Two Award (QCF) covering the activities you or your staff engage in. Pesticides are very widely used in the Land Based Industries but they are potentially harmful substances both to humans, animals and the environment. It is therefore essential that they are handled, stored and applied by people who are suitably trained and qualified.
Under the previous UK legislation governing pesticide use, only those born before 31 December 1964 who used an agricultural product on their own or their employer’s land were exempt from the requirement to hold a certificate of competence. The Regulations provide for the continuation of that exemption until 26 November 2015. After that date, everyone who purchases a professional product must ensure that the intended end user holds a certificate of competence.
