Companies must make sure that match your personality and satisfy your present and future needs toilets in their place of work are sufficient in number, convenient, safe, sanitary, and readily accessible. Recommended specifications or standards as to the design and upkeep of restrooms in commercial or business establishments can vary from one state to another but here are some important reminders.

Minimum number

The number of toilets your establishment should have is dependent upon the number of employees you have. Companies with 15 or fewer workers must provide at least one toilet. An extra toilet is required for each extra 2040 employees. By having the sufficient quantity of toilets, you ensure that employees do not need to wait for a long time just to make use of the toilet.

Gender guidelines

If you have both female and male employees, you have to have designated toilets for either gender. For companies with fifteen or fewer employees, a single restroom is often adequate, provided that it can be locked from the inside. In men’s restrooms, some toilets can be replaced by urinals but the quantity of toilets must not fall below two-thirds of the recommended number.

Companies should make sure that employees and clients are not put through any unreasonable level of health threat because of unsanitary conditions. Restroomsin business establishments have to be kept free of rodents, insects, and other vermin. If these are found, the company should find a way to exterminate these. Companies should allot adequate funds to buy commercial cleaning products and equipment to keep their restrooms free from filth and harmful organisms. A washbasin of ideal depth must be available in a toilet facility to allow staff to wash their arms and hands. A sanitary drying system must be offered to employees, too. This can be individual toilet paper dispensers or air hand dryers.

Disabled access

For restrooms used by both employees and clients, access to disabled persons should be made available. For example, restrooms should have doors that are no less than 36 inches wide and have grab bars installed on side walls of toilet stalls.

Other considerations

Toilet facilities do not have to be within the building itself, but, they should be placed at a reasonably accessible distance. Necessary measures should be in place to ensure that employees can use restrooms during water supply disruptions and when a toilet becomes damaged and temporarily unusable.
