Preventing or reducing exposure to agricultural chemicals is an important focus for health educators serving farmworkers and their families. The need for this health education has been intensified with the development of U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Worker Protection Standard (WPS). Among other requirements, WPS states that farmworkers must receive worker-safety training that covers specified topics related to chemical exposure. This annotated bibliography compiles 35 health education materials appropriate for use with farmworkers and related to agricultural chemical exposure. These items were published since 1988 and include various print materials, training manuals and curricula, and audiovisual products. The majority are available in both English or Spanish, or in Spanish only. Annotations include: brief description of contents and format, publisher, source, audience, language, reading level, evaluation of relevance to WPS, and suggestions for use. An introduction describes the search strategy and review process used to compile the bibliography. Appendices list information required by WPS and the bibliography's review format. (SV)
