Sanitation:  OSHA requires contractors to provide lavatory (portable toilets) for jobsite workers under per 29 CFR §1926.51:

  • Hand soap or similar cleansing agents should be provided.
  • It is recommended that each portable toilet on site be inspected weekly by a competent person and supplied with the appropriate cleansing agent(s) accordingly.
  • The portable toilets need to be “readily available.”  In general, that means workers should be able to reach one within 10 minutes.  Toilets are not considered “available” if they are dirty to the point of being unsanitary.

When nature calls, workers need ready access!
