Why Are Mobile Welfare Units So Popular?

Mobile Welfare Units, Groundhog Cabins for Construction Projects in South London & Central London


welfare unitsFound on construction sites, as well as at events and festivals, mobile welfare units represent the ideal facility for a range of needs. The HSE (Health and Safety Executive) recommend facilities be available for workers and others requiring somewhere to eat, rest, shelter or use the toilet. They can be extremely useful for ensuring standards of hygiene where normal indoor spaces are unavailable. On building sites, they allow staff to relax in clean surroundings, where they can get a drink, snack or recharge their batteries. On the subject of recharging batteries, you can charge your devices in welfare units from specialists such as Rhinos Plant Hire.

Perfect for construction sites in places like South London and Central London, these welfare units [sometimes called groundhog cabins] come in a selection of sizes and specifications. They can cater to 7, 10 or 12 people, providing a comfortable, dry place to have lunch, or a handy meeting area away from the office. This type of unit is known to promote a feeling of wellbeing amongst workers, with tea and coffee making facilities, microwaves, drying rooms and under seat storage. Construction workers in the past have been faced with a dilemma when needing to use the toilet. Welfare cabins have clean chemical toilets, allowing workers to get back to the work in good time.

Welfare units have everything staff could possibly need close by and in one practical and versatile package. Hygiene in particular has never been so important since the pandemic arrived, so staying clean is equal to staying safe in many people’s eyes. Staff morale is a big one too and can’t be overlooked. If staff know they are being catered to, productivity levels normally increase, which is a win win for everyone.
