“No entry for others into the tractor cab with you.”

The Association of Farm and Forestry Contractors in Ireland (FCI) has issued advice for contractors and machinery operators in response to the Covid-19 outbreak.

Advice:

  • Disinfect the interior tractor/machine cab twice-a-day;

  • Disinfect the tractor cab door handles twice-a-day;

  • No entry for others into the tractor cab with you;

  • Use disposable plastic gloves to open and close farm gates;

  • No hand contact, no shaking hands

  • If in doubt, check field and other instructions over the phone;

  • Keep a minimum of a two-metre safety distance;

  • Cough into your elbow;

  • Change overalls for a fresh one each day or use disposable overalls;

  • Bring enough food and drink to last a long day and take rest periods where you get out of the tractor cab for exercise and fresh air at least twice-a-day.
