Training - Practical Herbicide Application for Volunteers
Practical Herbicide Application for Volunteers
As ParkCare volunteers, some of our work involves using herbicides to treat weeds in our parks and reserves. Some of this requires volunteers to hold a current AQF3 (ChemCert) qualification, and some does not (such as cut/ dab herbicide application under certain circumstances).
Regardless, it's sometimes hard to remember our initial herbicide training. We might forget the rules regarding transporting chemicals, which gloves to wear, what PPE is required...
PCS Is partnering with TCCS so that ParkCare and Urban Landcare volunteers can get together for an informal training session where we can 'refresh' our knowledge about practical chemical application.
The training will cover:
- personal protective equipment (PPE)
- transporting chemicals
- safe handling of herbicides
- filling and using assorted spray equipment
- clean up arrangements
- necessary paperwork/ record keeping
This training will occur between 9:00am and 12:00 on 4th September at the PCS Stromlo Depot, 500 Cotter Road, Weston.
What to bring- as we will be working in a depot environment, please wear a hat, long pants/ sleeves and closed shoes.
