(name) said his employer has him apply Renegade HC for 5-8 hours at a time (and was told you can wash your hands in it/drink it and it¿s completely safe). He¿s been spraying a large junk yard to kill all the weeds. He¿s been doing this for 5 days. He does not wear a mask or gloves (sometimes coveralls and rubber boots, but if it¿s too hot, then just shorts). If windy, he does get spray back in his face/eyes. He feels really ill after applying and it usually goes away after a day or so. (Feels very nauseated but does not vomit). He said the Renegade HC is in a 5L container and he mixes ¿ a Campbells soup can to 2 gallons of water. (He has a 5 gallon container to do the mixing.)
