A welfare cabin is a compact and capable way of providing the necessary facilities on a construction site. They can be static or mobile, are self-contained, and designed to suit the welfare needs of staff throughout the course of a project.
If you’ve ever been on a construction site you’ll know that they can be cold, muddy, dusty, and altogether difficult environments to work in. In that case, you’ll want something that will give you and your workers a place to sit comfortably, eat, and relax. Your welfare cabin can be used on a morning to make tea and coffee, as a place for you to debrief your staff, hold meetings, and sit down and have lunch.
The law now firmly states that clients and contractors must provide welfare facilities on projects longer than 30 days and that arrangements must be made for this before the project’s starting date.
Throughout the course of the project, contractors must ensure that the facilities must have a welfare cabin and are kept in good condition.
The nature and scale of the facilities that are required depend on the size, location, and type of project that is planned. Every person working on a construction site must have access to toilet and washing facilities, drinking water, hot water, an area to prepare and eat food, a place to store and dry clothing alongside the necessary personal protective equipment.
Providing your staff with adequate welfare cabin and welfare facilities is not only a legal requirement but will ensure that your staff remain onsite for a longer period of time. Welfare Cabin will also give you a firm base to manage the site effectively, without having to commute to and from a different building each day.
Every Welfare Cabin provided by Khome complies with the standard steel structure building. Welfare cabins are made from full steel construction to ensure safety and security on any site. Alternatively if you’re looking for larger facilities, set up a site welfare compound for your employees, using a wide range of our site accommodation units.
