Welfare Arrangements

  • Welfare Arrangements
    Overview This talk will cover: the factors which determine whether site welfare facilities are adequate.
    General welfare
    1 Enough toilets, wash basin, drying space and rest areas must be provided to cope with the number of operatives on site.
    2 Toilets and wash basins must be properly maintained and kept clean – hot and cold water must be provided.
    3 If you change out of ‘street’ clothes into working clothes, a changing area should be provided with storage facilities for your ‘street’ clothes.
    4 Rest areas should include one or more rest rooms which must be arranged so that non-smokers are protected from the effects of cigarette smoke.
    Operative’s responsibilities
    1 Site staff should expect to use welfare facilities without finding them dirty, vandalised or covered by graffiti – leave them as you wish to find them.
    2 Use the appropriate rest area depending upon whether you are a smoker or not.
    3 Tell your supervisor if you are aware that welfare facilities are being deliberately damaged or otherwise misused.
    Food Safety
    1 Larger sites may provide hot or cold food as part of welfare arrangements.
    2 All food must be stored, handled and prepared in hygienic conditions.
    3 Anyone preparing food for others must observe good standards of personal hygiene, not smoke in food preparation areas and report certain illnesses.
    4 Where a cooker or microwave oven is provided for you to prepare your own food, ensure the food is thoroughly cooked – undercooked food can lead to food poisoning.
    5 Dispose of waste food safely; do not encourage rats or other vermin.
