8/12/09 Tim D’Amato’s email response to Wynne who asked him about precautions when using herbicides: “Hi Wynne, The label for each product has recommended PPE’s (Personal Protective Equipment). I personally would go with long pants, long sleeved shirt, sunglasses or some protective eye wear, latex or rubber gloves, and boots. The greatest risk to exposure is when mixing – concentrated material, chance of splash, etc. Rinse water for eyes, face and hands should be readily available when mixing. A mask should be available for those that feel it is important.
Maybe Steve could supply paper masks and latex gloves when giving out herbicide?
