Under construction: choose the right toilets for your site

Portable toilets are a necessity for all work sites that don’t have access to plumbing. From construction sites to the agricultural and mining sector, portable or temporary toilet facilities are essential in providing for workers’ basic rights. If you’re looking for your next hire, here’s what to consider:

Go tamper-proof

Hundreds of people can be working on one industrial site at any time, and these sites can often be vulnerable to vandalism and petty theft. For this reason, make sure the toilet facilities are safe and secure. A good starting point is choosing units that are tamper-proof to avoid having parts removed from site and having to deal with the resultant inconvenience and cost. Making sure toilets are placed in a well-lit area in sight of (or at least on the route of) any security officers is also important.

Let there be light (and water)

On industrial and construction sites, portable toilets are needed in areas where access to power is not guaranteed. On sites where staff are likely to be arriving before sunrise and leaving after sunset, units with solar-powered or battery-powered lights are ideal.

Units that have their own water conservancy systems are also vital for areas where water is scarce as this improves both overall hygiene and user comfort. These units will require maintenance and should be placed in areas where they can be easily accessed by service vehicles.

Weather the elements

When sites are exposed to the elements, choosing a portable or fixed-term toilet solution, you need to consider how well the structures can withstand some fairly extreme conditions. Units must be sturdy, reliable and fully corrosive-resistant.

Budget considerations

Make sure you know your requirements and budget. Factors that will impact the cost are the type of toilet units you require, the duration of the rental, and the servicing requirements. For long-term hires, we recommend going with basic and reliable units that have built-in power sources depending on your workers’ needs.
