The PA1 foundation unit is a mandatory unit for the safe use of pesticides. Due to this it must be completed before you can move onto another unit such as knapsack or boom sprayer. So it is important that you pass the multiple choice exam at the end of the first day.
As a result the unit covers the following:
- your legal responsibilities;
- risks with pesticides;
- storing of pesticides;
- handling of pesticides;
- mixing chemicals;
- calibration of pesticides;
- using and cleaning equipment;
- disposing of chemical waste safely and legally;
- safe working practices and industry best practice;
- emergency actions;
- health monitoring and
- record keeping.
