Mobile Welfare Units Anybody who works in the construction industry knows how dirty and strenuous the work can be. Long hours lifting, carrying and digging can take their toll on even the fittest body, which is why welfare facilities are a priority. This doesn’t just mean sticking a Portaloo on-site and leaving it at that. Providing Welfare Units of a certain standard for construction workers are now a government requirement. These units must have drink prep facilities and places to sit and eat, water, toilets, washing areas and somewhere to change.

Failure to provide the required welfare facilities may cause lack of productivity, increased employee absences and can result in hefty fines. This is why it’s in the interests of contractors and site managers to ensure the comfort of their workers. In years past, building workers were frequently forced to search for a place to rest or use the toilet. This often ended up being a pub, with the risk of workers being tempted into having a few drinks. This was a bad idea, as construction sites can be dangerous places, even if completely sober!

Thankfully we are more aware of the benefits of health and well-being these days, not to mention hygiene within a work setting. Welfare units should be available to workers at places like construction sites to cover peoples basic needs. There should be washing facilities like basins with hot water, soap and hand drying materials. Toilets must be cleaned and sanitised regularly to reduce any transfer of germs. It is illegal not to provide toilet facilities at work. Demanding physical work such as building means staff should have regular breaks including lunch. Microwaves, kettles and charging points are all desirable, as are storage and changing areas.
