October 17, 2014

Are There Portable Toilet Requirements For Job Sites?


Portable PottiesPortable toilet rentals are available for delivery in almost all areas. Portable toilets can be rented for any length of time. Even for a time period as short as one day. In most cases, portable toilets can be delivered to your location with as little as 48 hours notice. However, if you are ordering the toilet for a job site, it is best to order the portable toilet well ahead of time to ensure that it is available and ready for delivery when you need it.

The rules and regulations concerning the requirements for portable toilets on a job site are are governed by local, state and federal laws. Many local, towns, cities and municipalities have enacted ordinances that mandate a portable toilet on job sites. Additionally, many states have enacted laws that specify exactly what job sites require a mandatory portable toilet. These laws vary greatly between jurisdictions so check with your local building inspector to find out the applicable rules for your area. In many areas, the building inspector will not issue a building permit until the contractor furnishes the required portable toilet on the job site.

OSHA details the requirements for portable toilets on job sites under the Safety and Health Regulations section of the code. Check with the latest version of OSHA regulations to make sure that you are in full compliance with the applicable laws. Also, make sure that you have enough portable toilets on the job site to accommodate the number of workers on the site and to comply fully with the law.

You should have a portable toilet on the job site even if you are not required by law to do so. Having a portable toilet on the job site is affordable, and it will save you money in lost time and productivity. Your workers will not have to waste valuable time searching for a restroom. Another advantage to renting a portable toilet for your job site is that it is convenient and worry free. The rental company will handle the delivery and all of the maintenance of the toilet while it is on your job site. You will always have a clean and private portable restroom to use at your convenience.
