TITLE
Transient welfare facilities
ARTICLE
It is usual for the surfacing teams to work at transient sites where there are no fixed facilities for them to use. This means that employees at short-term motorway works, short-term town works and remote roadworks are usually eating cold food and drinks and washing facilities are often restricted to a cold
water tap.

To comply with regulations and improve welfare arrangements for employees, a policy decision was made to upgrade to new vehicles. Seventy new vehicles were provided improving the quality of facilities offered. These included:
- Hot water washing facilities;
- Ready access to soap;
- Hot drinking water facilities; and
- Microwaves for heating food.

These improvements have helped provide better welfare facilities and a higher quality of working life for the employees.
