Pesticide Safety Education
Georgia's Pesticide Safety Education Program promotes the responsible and safe use of pesticides throughout Georgia. We accomplish this by providing the educational resources, training programs, and materials needed to help both private and commercial pesticide applicators achieve certification and subsequently to maintain the knowledge to safely, effectively, and responsibly make use of general use and restricted-use pesticides. Our educational resources cover a broad range of pesticide safety topics including pest identification, personal safety, safe storage and disposal of pesticides, environmental protection, pesticide drift and runoff prevention, threatened and endangered species protection, pollinator protection, water quality protection, and feed and food safety. A special training program is available for public service employees, volunteers such as Master Gardeners, homeowners, and anyone looking to learn more about the responsible and safe use of pesticides in Georgia.
