Social Distancing


Social distancing measures are for everyone, including all farm businesses.  It is imperative to reduce social interaction between people in order to reduce the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) and is viewed as the most important step we can take in tackling the pandemic.

It is critical that all farm businesses:

  • Demonstrate that they can operate safely and that the safety and wellbeing of their workforce is of paramount importance; regularly conduct and review your risk assessments and health & safety protocols,
  • Implement and demonstrate all farm businesses can work in a way which is fully consistent with established social distancing and government advice,  
  • Ensure family members, staff, contractors etc. are fully briefed on safe working and social distancing practices and that they are supervised to ensure these are adhered to, 
  • Commit to keeping up-to-date with the latest advice from the Scottish Government and make the necessary changes to their business operation as required, should this advice change
  • Where possible should also endeavour to demonstrate to their customers and the public that their operations are fully compliant with safe working and social distancing procedures
