Achieving Social Distancing on Sites using a Changing Room Basket System

Despite largely achievable coronavirus distancing between workers when on site there are, however, certain pinch-points in the system where provisions for separation of operatives are not so obvious, potentially leading to a breakdown in effectiveness or loss of site efficiency. The locker room is one of these.

Traditional mesh or steel lockers bring individuals into close proximity in an often crowded environment. The static units meaning that even with restricted numbers using the changing room at once, it is impossible to separate people successfully, and poses challenges to cleaning routines.

By using a wire mesh numbered hanging basket/bench system, a totally managed process can be established to keep teams and operatives moving through a welfare facility, maintaining recommended social distancing and maximising site efficiency. By implementing staggered shift patterns, hanging baskets enable the same volume of operatives to be accommodated within the same allocation of space.

  • Easily create rotational queuing system with 2m distancing and regulate room numbers
  • Optimise shifts to make best use of changing room area
  • Minimise opportunities for contact between workers
  • Easy to clean changing areas
This example of best practice is just one way that projects can work to tackle the virus and reduce the spread. For full guidance and the latest Government advice read the Construction Leadership Council’s Site Operating Procedures.
