Gateway on Pesticide Hazards and Safe Pest Management
A Beyond Pesticides Resource
Our Smart on Pesticides Coalition partner Beyond Pesticides has created a database tool that is intended to provide decision- and policymakers, practitioners and activists with easier access to current and historical information on pesticide hazards and safe pest management, drawing on and linking to numerous sources and organizations that include information related to pesticide science, policy, and activism.
Currently, the Gateway lists chemicals and has categories of information: chemical name, factsheet and popular product and manufacturer names; chemical class; pesticide uses and information on less and non-toxic alternatives; toxicity rating; health and environmental effects; regulatory status; other information (brochures, factsheets, databases, websites, etc.); and, key studies. Beyond Pesticides ChemWatch factsheets must be read in conjunction with the Health and Environmental Effects chart in the Gateway
