(Salem) — The Oregon Occupational Safety and Health Division has again extended the public comment period on proposed additional safeguards against pesticide drift. The decision moves the deadline from Feb. 28 to March 15 and allows more time to comment on the proposed rules while considering a revised statement of need and financial impact.

Oregon OSHA appointed a Fiscal Impact Advisory Committee to provide additional analysis as part of the agency’s updates to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Worker Protection Standard. The committee included both grower and worker representatives. The committee finished its work in February with an Amended Statement of Need and Fiscal Impact.

Oregon OSHA’s rule proposals add protections to the EPA’s Application Exclusion Zone. The zone surrounds and moves with pesticide-spray equipment during applications. It must be free of all people other than appropriately trained and equipped pesticide handlers.
