Permaculture is the future
Permaculture is a forward-thinking design system based on principles found in nature. Its purpose is to create living environments that are harmonious, sustainable and productive; while greatly reducing the work and energy required to maintain them. At its core are the ethical principles of earth care, people care and fair shares.

George Clouston 's curator insight, March 7, 8:04 AM

I worked in agriculture for 20 years and agricultural safety matters still get my attention. Agro chemicals are a large part of modern horticulture, whilst awareness of the active ingredient has grown this article is interesting in that it raises the lid on the often overlooked ingredients in many product formulations. As an OHS professional we need to consider what solvents  and other chemicals are used in the product formulation. Very often it is not displayed on the products SDS. For example a certain product may have a 35% active ingredient formulation,  what is the make up of the  other 65%. Modern chemicals are part of our daily lives, and our society has partly become possible due to the use of agricultural and other chemicals in our workplaces.

The point  I am making is that OHS Professionals may at times need to look beyond the data  presented to the less obvious.
