A Guide to Welfare Van Hire

A Guide to Welfare Van Hire

When working at temporary locations such as construction sites, ensuring that all workers have access to the necessary welfare facilities and home comforts is of critical importance. While providing essential welfare facilities and amenities at static sites is relatively straightforward, provisioning the same facilities at mobile sites could potentially be a little more complicated if you do not know all your options. 

This is where welfare vans come in, units that are specially designed to offer facilities and services similar to those found in a permanent welfare unit. Garic has a fleet of specially designed mobile welfare vans that are spacious, self-contained, and equipped with various amenities to cater to the needs of workers in remote locations.

But what exactly do you need to consider in 2023 if you are looking to hire welfare vans for mobile construction sites?

  • Your requirements

Determine availability

We highly recommend contacting us in advance to discuss your requirements. A quick chat and we can let you know whether we have available for your dates.

Ensure your workers understand how to use the van

Where possible, we strongly recommend that you give your workers a full rundown on the proper use and care of the welfare van you hire. This means providing them with instructions on maintaining cleanliness, following safety protocols, and reporting any maintenance issues promptly. Encourage responsible use to ensure the van remains in good condition.
