The Department of Labor and Industries (L&I) is conducting rulemaking to better align chapter 296-307 WAC, Safety standards for agriculture, Part I, Pesticides (Worker Protection Standard) with Washington State Department of Agriculture (WSDA) requirements, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Worker Protection Standard found at 40 CFR, Part 170.

L&I and WSDA invite interested stakeholders to this virtual stakeholder meeting. During the meeting, L&I and WSDA will provide a brief presentation covering why L&I and WSDA believe rulemaking is necessary and share the current draft language, followed by an open forum for questions and comments. L&I and WSDA welcome stakeholder feedback.
