Poisonous Plant Safety Training Video
Poisonous Plant Safety - Poisonous plants in one form or another can be found throughout the United States. The prime hazard is the allergic reaction resulting from contact with the resin produced by the plants. These resins are so toxic that in the case of poison ivy and oak only one billionth of a gram is all it takes for a rash, and only one quarter of an ounce is enough to cause a rash on every person on earth. Many outdoor occupations such as tree trimmers, landscapers, surveyors, park and highway maintenance, meter readers, and fire fighters face frequent exposure concerns. The best way to avoid exposure is your ability to identify the plants in your region and avoid contact.
Topics included in this safety video are: Poison Ivy, Poison Oak, Poison Sumac, Plant Toxicology, What To Do If Exposed, Preventing Exposure.
