Providing welfare facilities

Welfare facilities should be clean and tidy.

Specialist areas, provided for workers to relax and enjoy breaks throughout the day, can help encourage a happier workforce.

It is very important for all members of staff to be able to take short breaks away from their work; within a comfortable environment.

Examples of welfare facilities provided:

  • Facilities included a recreation room, a quiet room and an open-air space in which to take breaks;
  • The drying room on small sites, has been doubled up, to also be used as a designated ‘quiet room’ should operatives ever need it;
  • Dedicated welfare facilities were installed at the off-site delivery holding area;
  • A hairdresser visited the site on a monthly basis and gave free haircuts to the workforce;
  • Hand hotties were provided to workers during periods of cold weather.
