Description:
Many pesticide applicators have died from accidental pesticide consumption. Some applicators die or suffer injury when they breathe pesticide vapors or the chemical gets on their skin. All people who handle pesticides should know first aid treatment for pesticide poisoning. First aid for pesticide poisoning offers advice on first aid treatment for pesticide inhalation, ingestion, or burns. This two-page fact sheet explains both general and specific pesticide poisoning treatments. According to the author, readers should note that first aid is not a substitute for professional treatment. Always call a physician and the poison control number in an emergency situation.
