By law, a site manager should always ensure that workers on site, whether directly employed by them or not, should have access to welfare facilities. Use our welfare calculator for construction sites to work out which unit is best for your site.
According to the HSE (Health and Safety Executive) Guide on welfare at work, if you employ anyone (however short the period) you must ‘so far as is reasonably
practicable’, provide adequate and appropriate welfare facilities for them while they are at work.
Welfare facilities should include; areas for washing, toilets, rest and changing facilities, and somewhere clean to consume hot and cold food and drinks during breaks. Check out our chart below to work out which welfare unit is best for you;
1-7 people on site
If your site has up to 7 workers on site, then we would suggest our 12′ welfare unit. Measuring at 3.6m x 2.4m, this unit includes a free weekly service as standard, and incorporates a canteen area with kettle and microwave, a seating area and table, drying room and chemical toilet.
8-10 people on site
If you have between 8-10 workers on site, then our 16′ welfare unit and a single portable toilet would be right for you. This 16′ unit measures at 5.4m x 2.4m and also includes a free weekly service and incorporates a canteen area with kettle and microwave, a seating area and table, drying room, chemical toilet and a separate office.
10-16 people on site
If your site has up to 16 workers, then we suggest our largest welfare unit. Our 20′ welfare unit and two portable toilets measures at 7m x 2.4m and has the same layout as our 16′ unit, however the 20′ includes a larger seating area. A free weekly service is included as standard.
For any additional numbers, we would suggest multiple welfare units.

Passing on my congrats and admiration for your team who worked tirelessly!
I wanted to just drop you a line to pass on my congrats and admiration for your team who worked tirelessly at an event (Endure 24) I was at last week! We put 2 large teams into the Endure 24 running event at Wasing park, and I noticed it was you guys who provided the site equip, in particular the loos & showers, which I can assure you got quite some use last weekend - thanks to the rain & mud!
Anyway, i was super impressed at the facilities, how clean & well stocked they were, even through the night. Clearly in our discussions earlier this year we spoke a lot about the team who work with the loos/showers but actually seeing them first hand working, I totally realise how hard the role is hence thought it might be nice for them to receive some praise. They did your organisation proud at a very large event, which quite frankly would have left us all feeling quite rubbish should the facilities have not been as up to scratch as they were. Running through the mud & rain in the middle of the night, then not being able to have a hot shower would have tarnished the event for me hugely. But instead, it was great. So many thanks! I do hope you have had other positive feedback because I couldn’t fault it!
We will definitely be using you again and also recommending you
Huge thanks Artur to you and your team for a faultless service. We will definitely be using you again and also recommending you – our party was a huge success and you were part of the great service.
