PA does not certify WDI inspections , but does certify pesticide applications. Therfore to perform WDI inspections in PA you must be a certified pesticide applicator, pass a specific WDI course, and prove that you have insurance coverage for pesticide application. I wish to avoid paying for insurance that I will never use. I have someone who will add my name to his insurance policy, but he wants assurance that I have my own WDI liability insurance, maintain my own state certifications (WDI), I will not apply pesticides, and basically provide no threat to his liability. Do I need to have this agreement drawn up by an attorney? or can I word a statement that satisfies his duties and mine and have it notarized? Thanks

What insurance that you ‘will never use’ do you wish to avoid paying for? WDI?

The insurance that I am trying to avoid is liability insurance for the application of pesticides.

Greg -

How are you going to avoid it when the guy to whom you are lateraling wants you to have it as a precondition of his accepting the assignment?
