Employee welfare is paramount, no matter which sector your business operates in.

Providing a safe environment for your staff to do their jobs as effectively as possible goes without saying. This isn’t just a matter of good business and employment practice. Legally all employers must provide adequate and appropriate welfare amenities for their staff while they’re at work. This includes access to drinking water, toilet, washing, rest and changing facilities.

Meet Legal Requirements As An Employer

Sometimes that’s easier said than done. What if you have a team working where amenities can’t be accessed easily, such as remote locations, at a roadside or railway, or on an overnight project?

No matter where they’re working, your staff will need basic welfare facilities, including somewhere to eat and drink during breaks.

What if your team needs to get on site quickly or at short notice with no time to mobilise welfare accommodation? Or, if you’re working across multiple sites, is it cost-effective for you to have static welfare accommodation at each site?

Welfare Vans Maintain Productivity

A welfare van may be just what you need. Not only do welfare vans ensure you meet your legal duties as an employer, they help keep your staff happy and maintain productivity by offering them a warm, safe and comfortable working environment wherever they are.

Their mobility means they can get to your site fast and without much forward planning. If you have multi-site operations, you can drive them from site to site as required.
