Setting up changing rooms in workshopsBruneau

Pay adequate attention to the lockers.

The federal government has issued a number of prescriptions with which company changing rooms must comply. The regulations in this regard are in fact rather extensive. A locker is ideal for use in changing rooms. The changing rooms must be in one or more rooms that are completely separated from the workshops and offices. If no more than three workers work in an office, then it is not necessary to have a separate changing room.

It goes without saying that every changing room has to be equipped with lockers to store personal objects. This also applies to temporary sites, where changing rooms may be housed in removable or mobile constructions. However, these must always provide protection against external circumstances, which means, among others, that they must afford protection in the event of bad weather.

The walls of the temporary changing rooms must be manufactured from hard and insulating material to guarantee maximum comfort. They are constructed in such a manner that the employees can change in warm and dry conditions. It is self-evident that these changing rooms are cleaned regularly, so that optimum hygiene is ensured. Installing lockers guarantees that employees will have the necessary privacy.

The following four tips to set up changing rooms in the workshop can already be of considerable assistance:

  • ensure that there is enough space between the lockers;
  • ensure that it is sufficiently ventilated and lit;
  • ensure that it is easy to put name plates on the lockers;
  • choose lockers that are large enough and adjusted to the type of work.
