COVID-19 Safe working guidance for farmers and outdoor workers

At this busy time of year, you may have more workers and contractors coming onto the farm.  You need to ensure you are following safe working practices in relation to COVID-19 and conducting risk assessments which need to be written down if you have 5 employees or more.  The following link is the Government guidance for those working outdoors including farmers - Working safely during Coronavirus - guidance for outdoor workers.  The HSE has also got a risk assessment guide for managing the risk of COVID-19 in the work place: HSE advice on safe working during Coronavirus.
