Despite the fact that pesticides are most commonly used in agriculture, they can also be found elsewhere. For example, certain pesticides are contained within slug pellets, ant powder, weed killers, and rat baits.
Whilst the main purpose of pesticides is to control pests, insects, fungus, and mould, they pose an ever-present risk to humans if touched, ingested, or inhaled. Symptoms of pesticide exposure include abdominal pain, skin disorders, dizziness, headaches, respiratory problems, and vomiting.
For this reason, anyone tasked with handling pesticides should be properly trained, wear Personal Protective Equipment, and advise others about the dangers that exist. If they fail to do so and you suffer from pesticide poisoning, you may be able to claim compensation.
