Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) was created to assure safe and healthful working conditions for working men and women by setting and enforcing standards and by providing training, outreach, education and assistance (osha.gov). The Occupational Safety and
Health Act was created in 1970 by the United States Congress and President Richard Nixon so that no worker should ever have to choose between their life and their job. OSHA entails sanitation standards, restroom structures, medical considerations and more for work sites.
Construction on an average home requires a staff of about 30 or more. Restrooms must be accessible to all employees at any time. The number of construction portable restrooms that need to be provided is dependent on the number of employees working. As a general rule by OSHA, one restroom is required for up to 15 employees, six facilities per 150 workers, and an additional fixture for every 40 employees beyond that (OSHA). Another rule is that bathrooms should be no further than a quarter mile from employees in any industry.
Afford-A-Potty offers portable restrooms for any type of construction site; residential, commercial and building sites. For smaller work sites, a standard individual portable restroom is very efficient. The single unit restroom facility is extremely easy to request and can be ordered in larger volumes with no difficulties.
The high-rise portable restroom is another perfect model for construction sites, specifically for high-rise construction. This porta potty is a fully self-enclosed restroom that can be easily lifted by a crane or rolled to any location on a job site. The wheels on this portable restroom allow for maneuverability and lock for secure stability.
Another great addition to construction sites is having hand wash sink stations. These stations will help your employees on site stay clean. A great asset to the hand wash sink station is the delayed action faucet. These faucets promote good hygiene by allowing both hands to be washed simultaneously.
Afford-A-Potty can help promote and maintain efficient and clean construction sites with various different portable restrooms and hand wash sink stations. Call 610-553-6020 today and get the best pricing, professional and friendly service.
