Read Pesticide Label for Your Protection (PSA Radio Script)

(Time: 45)

Read the label. You've heard it before, and you'll hear it again.

The label on farm pesticides will tell you how to protect yourself from a chemical's harmful effects. The label also will tell you what kind of protective clothing you need to wear.

It's not possible to recommend the same clothing for all pesticide jobs. You must judge for yourself what's appropriate based on what you're doing and what's indicated by the precautionary statements on the label.

Wear the right clothes for the job.
