Arranging site cabins as social spaces

The industry should always be looking to provide and improve the high standards of welfare facilities onsite as a service to its workforce.

Welfare facilities that not only offer the minimum requirements for its workforce but also added benefits, rewards those who use it on a day to day basis.

An environment where operatives feel comfortable and at ease can potentially create a hard working, appreciative workforce.

Below is an example of how site cabins were arranged to create more social space:

  • A steel frame open sided shed was constructed with the site cabins arranged around the perimeter. This created an internal courtyard, opening up additional space within the welfare facilities;
  • This outdoor space was used for operative training, daily briefings, toolbox talks and social interaction between workers;
  • It also provided an area for displaying information for the workforce, including five separate notice boards highlighting progress made;
  • This facility will be donated to the local farmer on completion of the project.
