TITLE
Mobile welfare units
ARTICLE
Both civil engineering and surface operations require that groups of operatives work in isolated locations, which often means they are without basic amenities, such as toilets and washing and drying facilities. Foster Yeoman was keen to improve standards of hygiene.

The company has produced a number of mobile welfare units from existing long wheel-based ‘Transit’ vans. The units are purpose-built to provide all the welfare needs of the employees including toilets, drinking water, washing, eating and rest facilities.

As well as raising levels of hygiene, these units have also enhanced morale, which is reflected in the great pride taken by the workforce to maintain the vehicles and the facilities.
