Compliance & Safety | Western Fumigation

Compliance & Safety in All Stages

We go above and beyond when it comes to safety and compliance in our industry.

Full Compliance and Beyond

We’re serious about safety and regulatory compliance. In every case, our company policies go beyond what the government requires. The result: fumigations that are performed safely, effectively, without delays, and in adherence with our protocols every time, so you never need to worry about compliance. We protect your shipments, products, premises, and people the same way we protect our reputation – vigilantly and professionally. Our dedication to assuring your peace of mind begins with our hiring practices and continues with extensive training, thorough documentation, and full compliance with the latest government regulations.

Careful Screening

We screen our employees before they’re hired. After hiring, we continuously and routinely use a rigorous safety and background system. In fact, our procedures exceed the most stringent government standards. We also have the most experienced field technical team in the industry which includes on staff, Board Certified Entomologists, Food Safety Specialists, and a dedicated field management team that includes a Compliance Officer. That way, we are able to offer expert guidance on solutions for every pest issue you could face.

Safety & Security

Our operational standards include measures that exceed regulatory requirements. We are the only fumigation company that guards our fumigation jobs 24/7 during operations and we don’t just leave when the tent comes off. We clear the home of any pesticides and then – and only then – is the job officially done. The safety and security of our employees and customers are paramount, freeing you from having to worry about it.

Respected Training Programs

As industry leaders in safety and technical training, we help “train the trainers.” For example, we have been instrumental in developing the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) fumigation standards and training programs. We have also worked with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Agriculture Research Services (ARS) on new equipment to meet quarantine standards for treating imported commodities from around the world.
