Providing environmentally safe, clean, and legally compliant welfare facilities at work, on a rail project can sometimes be a difficult task particularly when working in remote areas, where the terrain means getting vehicles trackside is a problem. We have considered all of the challenging elements that come with designing units in the rail sector, however, we have not let this stop us when designing our state-of-the-art railway welfare units. EasyCabin have designed several welfare vehicles that can help to overcome this situation. With one railway welfare unit - the EasyRail - developed using Road2Rail technology.
EasyCabin vehicle-mounted, mobile and static railway welfare facilities are individually manufactured for the rail and trackside markets. This is exemplified by the fact that the EasyRail unit utilises Road2Rail technology. This means that our railway welfare units are easy to manoeuvre and put in place, regardless of the terrain, or other noticeable challenges.
The railway welfare units’ energy performance is maintained by high standards of insulation, LED lighting, low carbon ‘air’ heating, and fuel-saving battery/ generator combinations. This means that you do not need to worry about the environmental impact of these railway welfare units, or the overall performance.
The law says that clients and contractors have responsibilities regarding railway welfare facilities on trackside projects.
Contractors provide welfare facilities and clients must ensure this happens. The pre-construction information prepared by the client should include the arrangements for welfare provision.
On notifiable projects (longer than 30 days or 500 person days), the client must ensure the phase does not start unless they are satisfied that there are arrangements for welfare facilities to be provided.
Contractors must maintain the facilities throughout the life of the project. The nature and scale of facilities required will depend on the size, location, and type of project. Welfare facilities include:
Note: Some rail projects may have individual welfare requirements. Check with the project manager.
All of our railway welfare units adhere to HSE Compliance, it is vitally important to check the requirements for your project to ensure that your workers have access to all of the necessary facilities.
