For Commercial Pesticide Handler Employers (CPHE)

Commercial pesticide handlers and their employees are included in the WPS even if some of the pesticide handling tasks (mixing, loading, disposing, etc.) take place somewhere other than the agricultural establishment that is the treatment site. An example would be mixing/loading at the commercial handling establishment or an airport hangar.
