An acute pesticide poisoning refers to a harmful exposure to a pesticide. These exposures may be due to inhalation, spills, or ingestion of a pesticide.
The Pesticide Exposure Safety & Tracking (PEST) program tracks acute pesticide poisoning incidents in Oregon, because suspected or known cases of human pesticide poisoning are a reportable condition in the state (OAR 333-017-0000 through 333-018-0015 and OAR 333-019-0000).
The PEST program also investigates human pesticide poisonings since it is a member agency of the Pesticide Analytical Response Center (PARC).
