What responsibilities do I have when applying a sanitizer or disinfectant?

Everyone is required by state and federal law to follow directions on the pesticide label. The label is the law. Read the label carefully. If the product is being used for SARS-CoV-2, look at EPA’s List N to find out which directions on the label (for which microbe) you should follow. Ensure the product label allows for use at your intended application site (ex. hospital) and surface (ex. non-porous countertops). Follow requirements for dilution rates; for personal protective equipment; and for time the product must remain wet on the surface. If your business requires a PABL, there are many more pesticide use laws to follows contact your inspector with questions.
