Construction Industry Regulations
Construction-Site Portable Toilets
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration requires employers to provide portable toilets at construction sites. The purpose of these regulations is to ensure that employees will not suffer the adverse health effects that can result if toilets are not available when employees need them. Dave's Construction recommends 1 unit per 10 workers for a 40-hour work week to ensure OSHA compliance.
Construction-Site Portable Hand Sinks and the “Total Water Solution”
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration requires employers to provide adequate washing facilities for employees that work with contaminants that may be harmful. Such facilities must be in near proximity to the worksite and must be equipped to enable employees to remove such substances.
Agricultural and Farming Industry Regulations
Agricultural-Site Portable Toilets
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration requires that an appropriate number of portable toilets and proper hand washing facilities be provided. Dave's Septic recommends 1 portable toilet per 10 workers for a 40 hour work week to meet OSHA requirements.
Agricultural-Site Hand Washing
For agricultural related industries, OSHA describes an adequate hand washing station as a facility providing a basin, container, or outlet with an adequate supply of water, soap and single-use towels.
Special Event Health and Food Service Regulations
Food Handling Requirements
OSHA requires that service employees conduct themselves in a sanitary manner when handing food products. All employee food service facilities and operations must be carried out in accordance with sound hygienic principles and food dispensed must be processed, prepared and handled in a manner that protects against contamination. In 1998, the Food Safety Initiative was created to protect the food supply from food-borne pathogens such as Salmonella typhi, Shigella Species, E. coli, and Hepatitis A. It found that providing water resources where running water is not available for hand washing helps to prevent the spreading of viruses. To comply with OSHA standards, learn more about the Dave's Septic "Total Water Solution" or Portable Hand Sinks.
Americans with Disabilities Act
The Americans with Disabilities Act requires that at least 5% (and no less than one) of toilets units complying with ADA guidelines be installed at each cluster of portable toilet or bathing units. Accessible units must be clearly identified and must be large enough to allow wheelchairs to make a 180-degree turn.
