Providing caravan accommodation for temporary workers

25 April 2017

FPC is sharing good practice with the publication of guidance in providing caravan accommodation for temporary workers in the UK.

An expert group of growers, suppliers and retailers, led by the FPC, has developed the guidance, following consultation with the industry last year.

The guidance includes information on legal requirements and benchmark indicators based on recommendations from a variety of sources, practical advice and experience. The importance for growers of carrying out their own assessment based on the specific features of their site is recognised.  A self-help checklist is included to help growers assess the status of their caravan accommodation against the benchmark indicators.

The aim of the guidance is to enable the industry to work together over time to improve conditions where necessary. FPC welcomes feedback on the application of the guidance and will be carrying out a formal review of this first edition at the end of the year.

The copy of guidance is available here and can be downloaded from the FPC website at: /services/fpc-publications/
