On May 8, 2013, Agriculture Weights and Measures (AWM) hosted a respiratory protection regulations training session.  County pesticide regulators from Southern California attended the training tailored for inspectors who conduct pesticide safety inspections.  The course was presented by Mr. Harvard Fong, a Senior Industrial Hygienist with the California Department of Pesticide Regulation. Topics ranged from details of the Voluntary Respirator Provision to uses and types of filters, cartridges and canisters. Trained staff is now prepared to uniformly and consistently apply these regulations to applicable inspections.  Due to the overwhelming response received for this training, a second date, June 27, 2013, has been scheduled by AWM to accommodate all interested parties.
