HOW MANY GALLONS OF WATER DOES A WASH STATION HOLD?
The Bravo wash station holds 20-24 gallons of fresh water and 22-25 gallons of waste (grey) water.
WHAT ARE THE OSHA RULES REGARDING HAND WASHING?
For 5 or more employees the hand washing requirement is one sink per 10 employees (so a 4-sink hand wash station would be sufficient for up to 40 employees). It must be available for use if the toilet is being used so it cannot be located inside of (or attached to) the restroom. A sign must indicate non-potable water intended for washing only. For fewer than 5 employees the washing facility can be located within the restroom.
WHAT ARE THE OSHA RULES REGARDING RESTROOMS?
Generally, a minimum of one separate toilet should be provided for each 10 employees of each sex. When there are fewer than 5 employees, a separate toilet for each sex is not required provided the toilet facility can be locked from the inside and has at least one toilet inside (as opposed to a urinal only).
WHAT ABOUT THE ADA (AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT) REQUIREMENTS?
It is important to note: The ADA states that the individual or entity responsible for set up of the site will be held responsible for ADA violations. It is in the customer’s best interest to know the specific requirements that relate to their work site.
In general, portable units that are used exclusively by construction site personnel do not require that an ADA complaint restroom be made available. A good rule of thumb for a special event is at least one ADA compliant restroom for each cluster of restrooms set up of 5% of total restrooms provided at a single location.
WHAT DOES THE DISTANCE BETWEEN A RESTROOM AND A FOOD STAND NEED TO BE?
Health department regulations require a portable to be 200 feet from any food booth.
