Water Storage for Hygienic Drinking and Washing Facilities

Construction sites in the UK are required by law to provide a clean water supply which includes drinking water and the provision of handwashing facilities.

This is particularly important given the COVID-19 pandemic as these water facilities will help to reduce the spread of infection if staff have a hygienic space allocated on-site.


During the warmer months, it is also especially important to ensure that all of your employees are keeping themselves hydrated and that means having access to clean drinking water.

Additionally, working outside in the cold will mean that employees can enjoy a hot cup of tea or coffee and a clean accessible water supply is key to keeping them happy when it is break time.

Legal requirement

All sites must have toilets, which are flushable as well as clean running water for washing hands, drinking water, and depending on the site and type of work, a working shower block.

This is according to Schedule 2 of the Construction (Design & Management) Regulations 2015 - so it must be abided by.

There are different types of water storage units that can be easily installed on-site such as static water tanks. These tanks are rustproof and can be manoeuvred into your desired location.

These water tanks are ideal for providing a clean water source on-site, and they can come in a range of different sizes depending on what you are looking for and how much water you need to store.

It’s important to remember that if not stored correctly water has the potential to transmit diseases and infection which is why your business must take all the necessary steps to ensure that the water you store on-site is of the highest quality and fit for purpose.
