About Us

Oregon's Pesticide Exposure Safety & Tracking (PEST) program seeks to reduce acute pesticide-related illness/injury in Oregon by conducting surveillance of acute pesticide exposure incidences, and by educating the public on using and storing pesticides safely.

We track and conduct investigations of health effects reported by people exposed to pesticides. These reports help us to identify trends in acute pesticide poisonings and emerging pesticide hazards and guide education and outreach efforts for prevention.

The PEST Program is part of Environmental Public Health in the Center for Health Protection. Search the Public Health Program Directory to see all programs in the Oregon Public Health Division.
