The Department of Pesticide Regulation is proposing to amend various sections of Cal. Code Regs. tit. 3, §§6000-6795 regarding pesticide worker safety. The changes would clarify personal protective equipment requirements, including aligning eye and hand protection with EPA guidelines, and reorganize the regulations to reduce ambiguity. The deadline to request a public hearing is December 19, 2014, and the deadline for comment is January 5, 2015. See http://www.oal.ca.gov/res/docs/pdf/notice/47z-2014.pdf (pp. 1928-31).
