Hiring portable toilets is easy. Knowing how many you need however, is another matter entirely. If you’ve found yourself asking, “How many portable toilets do I need?” then this blog is for you. From construction sites to events, we’re going to give you a brief run down to help you make the best decisions possible, saving you time and money in the long run.
Construction Site Toilets – How Many Do I Need?
When it comes to construction site toilets, the Health & Safety Executive have some pretty simply guidelines to help you. Their health and safety guidelines require you to provide at least one portable toilet for every seven people working a fourty hour week. They also recommend that where possible, you provide hot water hand washing facilities with facilities allowing workers to wash up to their elbows. When this isn’t possible, the guidelines state that providing cold water chemical toilets will suffice.
Here at euroloo, we can provide bog standard chemical site toilets, which are self contained and require no mains connection as well as mains connected toilets with the ability to provide both hot and cold running water. Where there is no mains connection available, we also have stand alone wash stations to provide your staff with areas to wash their hands and ultimately further prevent the spread of germs. We understand that it can be a little confusing when it comes to knowing how many toilets to hire still, especially with flexible working agreements in place meaning your staff may not all work full 40 hour weeks. In this instance, our team at euroloo HQ will be happy to help you decide on the correct amount for your particular site and workforce.
Event Toilets – How Many Do I Need?
When it comes to portable toilets for events, it’s a little different to construction sites. Unfortunately there isn’t a ‘calculator’ that can work this out for you, taking into consideration every aspect of your event. Different factors will affect how man toilets you need. These factors include:
• Size Of Your Event
• How Long Your Event Will Be Taking Place For
• Whether You’ll Be Serving Food And Drink
• Whether There Are Already Toilets In Place
• How Many Guests You Expect To Attend
The easiest way to find out how many toilets you’ll need for your next event is to first answer these questions. Once you know this, our team will be able to best advise you to ensure minimal queues and avoid overuse. They’ll also be able to best advise you on toilet placement, something that’s extremely important yet often overlooked at events.
We have a number of different toilets available for events, from standard event toilets to luxury toilet trailers. If you’d like more information on our construction site toilets or event toilet hire, simply contact us today.
