The safety hazards faced by pest control technicians are extremely varied. Whether those hazards are pesticides or power tools, confined spaces or diseases, technicians need information and training to protect themselves from injury or illness on the job.
First published in 2000, the Pest Control Technician's Safety Manual was a popular book in the pest control industry, and went through three printings. Many companies made the manual the basis for their company safety program. Instead of simply reprinting the Safety Manual again, the authors decided to completely revise and update it to reflect changes in pest control procedures and equipment, safety equipment technology, and safety regulations. As before, at the back of the book are questions to help review what was learned. There is nothing else like it available.
This updated second edition is both a reference book and a safety training tool, written in plain English, with easy-to-follow instructions. There are fifty-one safety sections listed in alphabetical order, each covering a safety issue relevant to pest control technicians. Each section includes illustrations and a list of key points.
