Looking After Your Construction Workers

Construction sites can be a tough working environment, with staff working out in the elements to carry out physical labour, sometimes for long periods of time. It’s crucial that construction workers have a place to take a break and rest, as well as having proper hygiene facilities too.

Whether it’s a place to eat lunch or even have a shower at the end of the shift, every construction site should have a welfare unit for its staff. Of course, it’s also important to make sure that your construction site also adheres to recent guidelines surrounding working during the Covid-19 crisis.

So, what are the benefits of welfare units and why should you include them on your site?

Mobile vs static welfare units

At SRP Hire Solutions we can offer either mobile or static welfare units. The main difference is that mobile units can be towed, whereas static units are placed in a position they will remain in for the duration.

It can depend on the environment you’re working in; if you are moving between sites, a mobile unit would be much better suited to your needs. If you are on one sit for a bigger project, a static welfare unit is suited for long-term use.

We can help you decide if you aren’t sure!

Room to have a break

Welfare units are especially important to give staff a break area on a construction site, where there is little alternative shelter. Every worker, no matter the industry, needs a break during the working hours and a welfare unit makes this possible in the construction industry.

You should also provide the right toilet facilities as you are required to by law, as well as considering changing areas and a place for staff to eat. This should be organised before the construction site is up and running, to ensure everything is in place.

Happy staff are productive staff

The right space for staff to have a break, use the toilet or catch up on any paperwork can ensure the team remain as efficient as possible. Providing the right facilities can mean the workers are able to do their job to the best of their ability.

Welfare units are able to cater to your workers’ needs on the construction site, reducing the need to go off-site to the office, which could be miles away. This can help to make the most of the working hours.
