- All employees who spray chemicals as part of their employment are required to have an operator’s license and should attend the Operators General Standards class.
- Each utility should have a person designated as the applicator who will need to oversee all chemical spraying operations. To obtain an applicator’s license an employee must first successfully pass the Operator’s General Standards test with a minimum of 70%. At that time, they will be permitted to take the Applicators Rights-of-Way test. It is recommended that those who wish to obtain this license should attend the Rights-of-Way Applicator’s class.
