Making sure you’re covered by University liability insurance when applying pesticides on the job

If an employee is applying pesticides as part of their job duties, that employee should complete the OSU Employee Health Registry and indicate they are exposed to pesticides.  This will kick off the annual employee physical process. If the employee is licensed and trained, then the employee would be covered as a university employee wherever he/she is performing official job duties.  If an accident happened where the employee was injured, it would be a worker’s compensation issue which is managed by HR.
