How Many Toilets Are Needed At A Construction Site? This is the most common question asked to our hire team, to ensure you have the correct number of chemical portable toilets on your building site.
The answer is simple. There should be one toilet per 7 persons per 40 hour working week. Here at Site Equip we understand that on your building and construction site you may have trades which vary how many people you have on site, both increasing and decreasing. This is why we offer additional services to your chemical toilets, whether you require twice a week servicing, every day or just once a month we are able to adapt our servicing schedule to your needs.
In addition to How Many Toilets Are Needed At A Construction Site? The second most common question we receive is what type of site toilets do I have to have?
Quite simply there are three types of portable toilets which are HSE (Health and Safety Executive) approved. These are:
These toilets are the most common on construction site, they comprise of chemical toilet and a cold water hand washing facility, enabling you to wash up to your elbows. Site Equip include within the hire rate a free weekly servicing which comprises of; emptying the effluent, cleaning the surfaces, replacing the toilet roll, hand towels and soap.
The hot water chemical toilet is available in either 110v or 240v which enables the hot water heater to warm the water to ensure everyone on site has warm water to wash their hands with. The toilet inside of these portable toilets is a chemical one, which similarly to the cold water version, includes a free weekly service.
The portable toilet which the HSE (Health and Safety Executive) prefer the most is the mains connected portable toilet. This unit enables you to connect the toilet to mains sewage, water and electric, running the unit most similarly to a permanent unit. Hiring this unit means that we would not have to have service the toilet, enabling a high usage on site.
If you would like to hire any these toilets, or would like any further advice on our range of sanitation and welfare equipment please give our friendly construction team a call on 01256 384 134 or fill out an enquiry form below.
