Margaret Reeves, Kristin Schafer, Kate Hallward, & Anne Katten; Victor Reyes (tr). Agriculture is still one of the most hazardous occupations in the U.S. Pesticide exposure incidents often go unreported because many farmworkers are afraid of incurring medical bills since few have health insurance & many do not realize they are entitled to Workers’ Comp. Many workers fear retaliation from employers or are not provided sufficient pesticide hazard training to recognize symptoms of pesticide poisoning. Chapters: farmworkers on the frontline of pesticide exposure; reported pesticide exposure among CA farmworkers; most pesticide poisonings are not reported; enforcement of pesticide laws; & protecting farmworkers from pesticides.
