Providing environmentally safe, clean and legally compliant welfare facilities 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. EasyCabin have designed several welfare vehicles that can help to overcome this situation. With one unit - the EasyRail - developed using Road2Rail technology.
EasyCabin vehicle mounted, mobile and static welfare units are individually manufactured for the rail and trackside markets. This is exemplified by the fact that the EasyRail unit utilises Road2Rail technology.
The welfare units energy performance is maintained by high standards of insulation, LED lighting, low carbon ‘air’ heating and fuel-saving battery/ generator combinations.
The law says that clients and contractors have responsibilities regarding welfare facilities on construction 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 construction 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.
