Portable toilet options which is right for you Rent A John portable toilet rental Wilmington North Carolina

If you’re in the market for a portable toilet, you’re probably feeling overwhelmed with how many options are out there. Not only do you have many styles to choose from, but you may wonder which option is best for your situation. 

From the standard porta potty to deluxe versions, we’re breaking down the array of portable toilet options that are available for your public event, wedding, formal fundraiser, construction site, and more. 

The Fancy Option: Portable Restroom Trailers 

Portable restroom trailers provide all the functionality of your traditional portable toilets but with the luxury of your home bathroom. Although this is not the best solution for work zones, portable restroom trailers provide on-demand bathroom access for weddings or other formal events.  

“Luxury” and “portable toilet” are two terms that rarely see one another’s company. However, these trailers come furnished with hardwood floors, high-quality sinks, artwork, and full mirrors.

The Trusty Standard: Porta Potties 

The design of the standard Porta-potty has largely gone untouched and for good reason. These functional, easy-to-move units provide toilet access with an optional instant hand sanitizer.  

If you’re hosting a large public event like a concert or a marathon, or if you need to add restrooms to a construction worksite, the standard portable toilet units are the way to go.

The Rooftop Option: Lifting Sling Portable Toilets 

The lifting sling portable toilet model has the same dimensions and features as a standard unit. However, this unit also has a lifting system installed.  

This solution is perfect for rooftops and brings the restroom to your workers, saving you time and money. Learn more about lifting sling portable toilets now. 

The Ultra-Portable Option: Poly Lift Portable Toilets 

Similar to the lifting sling unit, you can crane the poly lift portable toilet to rooftops and other building levels for easy worksite access. The fundamental difference though is that the poly lift unit is on wheels, making it possible to roll a portable toilet on and off the site and into elevators!

Essential OSHA Rules for Bathroom Facilities at Construction Sites

OSHA Rules

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is a government entity that creates rules and regulations that provide safety and well-being standards for workers.

In this blog, we’ll examine the OSHA rules pertaining to the regulation of portable bathroom facilities at construction sites.

OSHA rules on the number of restrooms.

According to OSHA, no less than one bathroom can be allocated to a construction site if the number of employees is greater than 20.

The easiest way to comply with these regulations is to order portable toilets, which are dropped off, managed, and cleaned by our crew of professionals.

Number of employees  Minimum number of facilities
 20 or less 1
 20 or more 1 toilet seat and 1 urinal per 40 workers.
 200 or more 1 toilet seat and 1 urinal per 50 workers.

Portable restrooms kept in unsanitary conditions will not count toward this requirement. Turn to us for this service; we offer weekly maintenance support for all our long-term rentals, guaranteeing that they are kept in a sanitary condition.

The exception.

In accordance with 1915.88(d)(4):

The requirement to provide toilets does not apply to normally unattended worksites and mobile work crews, provided that the employer ensures that employees have immediately available transportation to readily accessible sanitation facilities that are maintained in a clean, sanitary, and serviceable condition and meet the other requirements of this section.”

In short, bathroom requirements do not apply to crews that remain mobile on unattended work sites. However, for convenience reasons, many situations can benefit from temporary portable restrooms.

Cleaning schedule.

Employers must implement a cleaning schedule to ensure that all bathroom facilities are kept in sanitary conditions. We understand that you may not have the time to worry about proper sanitation requirements.

At Rent-A-John, we maintain all units we own to the highest standards to provide the cleanest, best experience for our construction site customers.

Privacy regulations.

Employers shall provide facility privacy through their portable toilet solutions to ensure each employee is given the proper privacy. Privacy, cleanliness, and convenience are just a few of the standards we strive to provide to each one of our clients.

Planning your restroom needs for your employees and contractors is an important part of the construction process, and it doesn’t have to be complicated.
