Mobile welfare units have always been a useful and practical addition to any construction site. They offer a way to relax, clean up, shelter, use the toilet and store personal belongings while at work. These Groundhog cabins are even more crucial nowadays, with the arrival of the pandemic and the need to stay virus free. The Health & Safety Executive [HSE] maintain that ‘you must provide the right welfare for workers under your control while they are on site. Principal Contractors must ensure that this is done from the start of the project until it finishes’.
Welfare units can provide workers with everything they need to carry out their daily tasks without issue.

Washing facilities should be available near toilets and changing areas. They should have:
It is recommended that where chemical toilets are in use, there should be one toilet to seven persons working a 40-hour week. They need to be serviced / emptied regularly for proper hygiene to be achieved. Male and female workers may use the same toilet provided they are lockable. Sanitary waste disposal must be available in facilities where there are female workers. Washing areas also need proper cleaning on a regular basis, daily or more frequently where the site is muddy etc.
There should be an adequate supply of soap, toilet paper, paper towels so there is no chance of running out. Good ventilation and lighting is also important in toilet and wash areas.
