New welfare vans for JN Bentley

JN Bentley has taken delivery of three brand new bespoke welfare vans to add to its feet of vehicles, plant and equipment.

Facilities onboard the Ford Transit Welfare Vans include hot and cold running water, a microwave, fridge, water boiler, a fush toilet and warm-air heatng, on top of the typical features of a JN Bentley van.

The standard welfare vans on the market didn’t fit the company’s requirements so JN Bentley has worked with its supply chain to develop this unique layout inside the vehicles.

The vehicles will be deployed to projects where staff will only be on site for a few days at a tme, and are initally being used on a series of small pumping staton schemes across Yorkshire.

The major advantage of the vans is their fexibility. Whereas in the past welfare cabins had to be transported to and from these smaller and ofen rural sites, now the welfare vans (that ofer the same facilites as these cabins) can arrive and depart site instantly.

This improves the standard of welfare for employees on site, makes establishing the sites a lot more efcient, and provides substantal cost savings too.
