Welfare Facilities Toolbox Talk (UK) Mobile App
Appropriate welfare facilities are fundamental in safeguarding the health and well-being of workers.
How does it work?
Welfare facilities are described as the areas set aside for employees to take a break away from their work area, eat their meals or use the toilet. Storage areas and shower facilities should also be in place for workers. The Welfare Facilities Toolbox Talk (UK) posts the Welfare Facilities and Arrangements guidelines outlined for approved welfare facilities: the provision of toilets (sufficient for the numbers of people and preferably separate facilities for men and women), washing facilities with hot and cold running water, soap and towels or a hand-dryer, changing facilities and areas to store wet clothes, clean drinking water, clothing storage, facilities for preparing, warming and eating food, facilities to make hot drinks, seating with backs to the seats, and heating and ventilation. The need to take into consideration access for people with disabilities. The facilities must be kept clean and in good condition with an adequate supply of toilet paper, soap etc.
