Occupational Pesticide Illness Prevention Program

The Occupational Pesticide Illness Prevention Program (OPIPP) identifies the kinds of jobs and types of pesticides that cause health problems in workers.

Information gathered by the program is sent to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), which use this information to shape pesticide policy to prevent future pesticide illness.  This program is part of the Sentinel Event Notification System for Occupational Risk (SENSOR), funded by NIOSH.
