1 Presented by SAFE USE OF PESTICIDES REPLACING GRANDFATHER RIGHTS

2 Level 2 Award in the Safe Use of Pesticides Replacing Grandfather Rights What are Grandfather Rights? Under previous legislation, anyone born before 31 st December 1964 did not need a specified Certificate of Competence (CoC) to apply a professional plant protection product (PPP). From 26 th November 2015, EVERYONE will require a CoC to apply PPPs.

3 Introduction The qualification consists of one mandatory unit and three optional units: Mandatory: 51The principles of safe handling and application of pesticides on own land Optional: 052: Hand held pesticide application on own land 053: Operating machines to apply pesticides on own land 054: Applying pesticides using other specific equipment or methods on own land

4 This section covers the mandatory unit: The principles of safe handling and application of pesticides on own land Unit 051

5 Outcome 1. Know the legislative requirements and codes of practice relating to the use of pesticides on own land Assessment criterion 1.1 Identify an operator’s responsibility under current legislation relating to the use of pesticides on own land What is a Code of Practice? Written guidelines issued by a professional body to maintain standards. What are ‘legislative requirements’? Laws impact on all aspects of work, including the use of pesticides. Failure to comply with these laws may result in prosecution, fines or even imprisonment. The Code of Practice for Using Plant Protection Products refers to a number of different pieces of legislation, including:

6 The Health and Safety at Work Act (1974) The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations (1999) Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations (2002) The Control of Pesticides Regulations (1986) Personal Protective Equipment Regulations (1992) Manual Handling Operations Regulations (1992) Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (1998) Wildlife and Countryside Act (1981) Food and Environmental Protection act 1985 Assessment criterion 1.1 Identify an operator’s responsibility under current legislation relating to the use of pesticides on own land Outcome 1. Know the legislative requirements and codes of practice relating to the use of pesticides on own land
