Top Reasons You Must Keep Your Welfare Unit Clean


Site owners should always provide welfare units for their workers where they can’t use local toilets and they have a legal obligation to do this. Proper maintenance of a welfare unit should be seen as essential, and they need to be serviced and kept clean regularly. To meet the required standard this needs to be done weekly as a minimum.

These standards are set by regulatory bodies including the HSE. They state that toilet facilities should ideally be connected to mains water and drainage systems. If this isn’t possible, then a built-in water supply and holding tank must be provided. Consideration also needs to be given to the number of toilets needed for the number of workers on a site. The frequency of cleaning will always depend on their usage.
