When transporting pesticides, I take precautions so as not to endanger humans, animals or the environment.
As a commercial carrier I transport pesticides in the original manufacturer's package or container.
As a commercial carrier I segregate pesticides from any other materials such as food, clothing, animal feed or any other materials that may be consumed by humans or animals in order to prevent commingling pesticides with these materials.
I only transport bulk pesticides in containers that prominently bear the product label.
When I transport pesticides I secure the container in a manner that prevents significant movement in any situation during transport.
I never carry pesticides in the passenger compartment of any vehicle.
I never leave my vehicle unattended when transporting pesticides in an unlocked truck compartment or open-bed truck.
I protect pesticides from extreme temperatures during transport such as extreme hot and cold temperatures that can damage pesticide containers by causing them to melt or become brittle.
