IPC Ltd take care of organising site welfare for your project.

  • The law says that clients and contractors have responsibilities regarding welfare facilities on construction projects.
  • We will provide welfare facilities for the onsite crew and make sure on your behalf that all facilities provided are compliant. You as the client, have a responsibility to ensure this happens.
  • We have a responsibility to 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.


Toilets should be suitable and sufficient, ventilated, lit and kept in a clean and orderly condition.
Washing facilities must be provided so that workers can use them immediately after using the toilet or urinal, even if they are provided elsewhere.
