Construction workers have some of the toughest jobs around in places like South London, requiring strenuous and repetitive work. This means breaks are extremely important, as fatigue can significantly slow down progress. It can also result in a lack of effort and inferior job outcomes due to tiredness and low energy. Apart from that aspect, there is the weather to consider, which can be very unpredictable in the UK. A warm, sheltered area is essential and must be available, which is why our mobile welfare units are so popular.
Having these facilities on site doesn’t just improve the feeling of well being among staff, it adheres to government health and safety guidelines.
The building site environment must offer facilities that cater to the basic needs of workers, this includes refreshments. After a period of intense labour, workers need to stop and rest for a while, and perhaps have a drink. They may also have to use the toilet, or freshen up before carrying on. Mobile welfare units are designed with all of these needs in mind, and can accommodate a varying amount of people.
As well as short breaks and hot or cold drinks, there has to be somewhere to eat a prepared lunch. Skipping meals may mean that workers end up flagging before the end of their shift. Physically demanding work needs to be tackled with full concentration, a little difficult if hungry, thirsty or needing the loo!
Our Welfare units come in a choice of sizes and configurations depending on the specific needs of the project. They are excellent for a range of uses whether it’s a canteen, an office, meeting place, a storage area or toilet. Manufacturers Boss Cabins have thought of everything you could possibly need with these units. There are microwaves, kettles, charging points for devices and even a drying room for anyone caught in an unexpected downpour. There are tables and comfortable seating with built in storage.
When an office space is required, these units fit the bill, providing a quiet place to take stock and oversee the proceedings. They represent a perfect indoor area to carry out paperwork or any other administration tasks. Designers, team leaders and project managers find these mobile units very convenient for holding meetings.
Welfare units are available for hire at Rhinos Plant Hire, and feature full on protection with heightened security. You will find stainless steel windows with toughened glass, doors with high quality 3 bolt locking systems and anti-prise strip keyholes.
