The object is to investigate: 1. How well current pesticide label safety directions registered for use in Australia align with best practice Occupational Health and Safety risk management, 2. How pesticide users and handlers in agriculture comply with label specifications for safety, and what are the impediments to compliance with pesticide safety directions, and 3. The availability and accessibility to farmers, the range of effective personal protective clothing and equipment for use when handling pesticides. If you agree to participate in this study, you will be asked to participate in one of seven focus group discussions that are being conducted across Australia. We are interested in your opinion on how personal protective equipment and clothing is used when you use agricultural pesticides. There are no right or wrong answers.
