Ensuring your workplace is Covid-secure is of paramount importance during the pandemic and a simple farm checklist could help you through the process.

The Covid-19 checklist outlines all of the steps farms should be taking in areas such as around the farm and packing areas, policies, managing people, accommodation, transport and emergency procedures.

The forms were created by auditor Dave Back for use by HOPS farms and have been adapted from various template sources.

The simple to follow forms will help farms to manage the processes they need to have in place to ensure they are operating a safe working environment.

HOPS Director Sarah Boparan said: “These simple checklists are a useful way to keep track of all the additional protocols farms need to have in place to operate safely during the pandemic.

“There is so much guidance out there it can be easy to get confused working out what you should have in place. We’re grateful to auditor Dave Back for producing these forms that provide a simple one-stop checklist for busy growers.”
