Industry Leading Environmental Solutions and Welfare Facilities

We’re passionate about what we do, and we’re passionate about you, and your work sites. We know the difficulties that can be involved in ensuring that your site has the welfare facilities on-site to stay compliant with all relevant legislation. 

To ensure that you know what’s required, we’re going to run you through a short, welfare facilities checklist, and inform you of how we, at Garic, can keep you compliant. 

The Welfare Facilities Checklist

Ensuring that you have the right welfare facilities on-site can be a bit of a headache, regulations dictate what is required in which circumstances. On top of this, many sites have additional environmental and situational regulations which must be met, but more on that later!

Let’s start with what welfare facilities on-site are required, as standard, where reasonably possible. We’ve used the latest Construction Design and Management (CDM) regulations, and devised this welfare facilities checklist, which states that sites must provide the following:

  • Toilets should be lit and ventilated
  • Hot water to wash hands with
  • Arrangements for cleaning the toilets
  • Fully flushable is recommended
  • Sufficient soap or washing agents, such as sanitiser
  • Supply of toilet paper
  • For female employees, a sanitary bin must be provided
  • Facilities should be cleaned regularly
  • A means for drying hands, either paper towels or a hot hand dryer
  • The basin should be large enough to wash hands and forearms if required
  • An area to change, dry, and store clothes
  • A rest area suitable to make hot drinks, eat food, and sit
  • Drinking water

Welfare Facilities – Environmental Considerations

What are environmental considerations on-site? This will depend on the area in which the site is, as the legislation from local authorities and environmental agencies will differ in certain areas. 

Factors such as the contamination of surface and groundwater as a result of contamination due to the discharge of sewage, oil, fuel and oil-based chemicals, must not only be considered but avoided. While you will often find that local councils require public accessways to be kept clear from mud and construction site debris at all times, making the need to keep your fleet clean of great importance.
