New ESD Inspector currently in training.
Updated: Dec 22, 2020
Please help us welcome our new ESD inspector, Alexander Meraz. Alex will be specializing in the compliance of pesticide use and worker safety regulations.
He is currently going through the Arizona Department of Agriculture, Environmental Services Division’s Inspector Training Program and will be out in the field soon. Part of our training program includes instruction on all pesticide regulations, including the Worker Protection Standard and other industrial safety measures. The ESD Inspector Training Program includes a food safety awareness component, as inspectors must follow same precautions as workers when in food production and harvest sites.
Insp. Meraz is assigned to the Phoenix ESD office located at AZDA Headquarters, but his area of responsibility will include Maricopa and several other counties.
We want to thank Amigo Farms and Nature Fresh Farms for their invaluable assistance with our inspector training program.
