Welfare Units Benefits

The law requires that you provide welfare units for any project that’ll take over 30 days to complete. Besides being a legal requirement, welfare units are also geared to ensure your workers are comfortable and don’t have to leave the site in search of basic amenities, such as toilets, drinking water, and food. This plays a great role in boosting staff productivity. 

That said, let’s take a more in-depth look at the advantages of using welfare units.  

Benefits of Welfare Units

With a good welfare unit, you can enjoy the following facilities. 

1. Hygienic restrooms 

Welfare units are equipped with clean and hygienic toilets that are designed to meet various sanitary needs of your workers. These toilets usually have proper lighting and adequate ventilation to ensure they are safe and pleasant to use. Moreover, your welfare unit service provider normally ensures that restrooms are cleaned on a regular basis depending on how often they are used.  

2. Washing facilities 

Your workers won’t have to worry about how to clean up after work. With a welfare unit, they will have convenient access to the following: 

  • Clean running water – whether cold, hot, or warm 
  • Sufficient lighting in the washing area 
  • Cleaning agents such as soap and detergents 
  • Towels 

3. Cooking and dining facilities 

You don’t want your staff to have to leave the work site in search of food whenever they get hungry. It can be inconveniencing and time-wasting. Welfare units are equipped with necessary kitchen appliances, so your workers can easily prepare hot meals and beverages. In fact, you are required by law to provide your workers with cooking equipment such as kettles and microwaves. 

4. Seating and resting facilities 

Your workers will occasionally need to take a rest before continuing with the work. So, you should provide them with a serene and comfortable environment to ensure they can rest properly. The easiest way to make this happen is by investing in a welfare unit that is equipped with a well-designed seating cabin to suit your workers’ needs.  

5. Changing rooms and storage facilities 

In some lines of work, especially in construction sites, your workers will want to wear protective clothing. They’ll also want to clean up after work. Welfare units are equipped with separate changing rooms for ladies and gents to ensure they all can enjoy much-needed privacy when changing their clothing.  

Moreover, welfare units have secure storage facilities, so your workers don’t have to worry about the safety of their personal stuff.  

It’s also worth noting that some units are equipped with drying rooms where you can dry your clothing. Sometimes you get rained on while at the construction site and it’s not easy to work efficiently in wet clothing.  

If you are looking to hire welfare units for a small company, a construction site, or any other project, Addplant Ltd has you covered. Addplant offers a wide range of highly functional, HSE-compliant welfare facilities to suit the needs of a variety of different projects.
