It is advised that all Golf Course owners have to ensure adequate provision for staff welfare on site!
The general requirements for the provision of staff welfare facilities are contained in the Workplace (Health Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992 and the accompanying Approved Code of Practice (available from HSE Books).
Many staff welfare facilities are located within a main storage building and the specific requirements below will need careful consideration to ensure your greenkeepers welfare facility is in compliance with these Regulations.
- Windows for natural light and ventilation
- Doors and gates
- Sanitary conveniences and washing facilities
- Drinking water
- Accommodation for clothing and facilities for changing
- Facilities for rest and to eat meals
So, what better way of protecting your staff and giving them what they need on site with building a New Steel Framed Building.
We are in the process of building such a unit for the Feldon Valley Golf Course in Braille. It is a full turn key project including groundworks, erecting the steel building, wood cladding the outside of the steel building, full internal fit out, electrics, plumbing, fowl and sewage works and landscaping.
The project is going to take 3 months to complete and we have been on site since the first week in January.
This is were we are now with the project, which is progressing very well and on time! The building has now been over-clad with wood and the aluminium doors and windows have now been installed.
