Portable toilets are stationed at a construction site in Houston

Access Portable Toilets and Showers for Construction and Industrial Sites

Construction and industrial sites typically lack access to stationary restroom facilities and eyewash stations. Yet, crew members who work with certain hazardous or unhygienic substances need to be able to use restrooms and showers while at the job site.

How can you ensure that your workers have the proper accommodations? With portable toilets and showers provided by Texas Outhouse.

Why Rent Portable Toilets and Showers?

Portable toilets are a standard requirement to keep your worksite in compliance with OSHA regulations. Meanwhile, eyewash stations and emergency showers offer a hygienic solution for any construction or industrial work location. 

Both a portable restroom and an eyewash station are cost-effective solutions for any job site. Plus, we can deliver these units virtually anywhere in the Greater Houston area.

Let’s take a closer look at the benefits of a restroom and shower rental.

1. Satisfy OSHA Requirements

Having the proper number of portable restrooms available at the job site is critical. Additionally, you must ensure that each unit is usable. It’s not enough to just have toilets at the job site; they must be sanitary to qualify. Here is the OSHA standard for how many toilets you need per worker:

  • 20 employees or less: 1 unit
  • 20 employees or more, but less than 200: 1 toilet seat and 1 urinal per 40 workers
  • 200 employees or more: 1 toilet seat and 1 urinal per 50 workers

2. Support Worker Morale 

Workers will truly appreciate having access to portable toilets and eyewash stations instead of having to take care of their needs at nearby commercial buildings like gas stations and restaurants.

Renting portable units solves this problem by providing quick access to a facility when needed most. Employees will spend less time finding transportation or walking in hot, cold, or rainy weather conditions, and more time at the job site performing duties.

3. Increases Productivity    

Employees who spend less time searching for a restroom or eyewash facility will face fewer distractions. Your workers will be able to stay focused on getting the job done with the assurance that they can use a unit when the need arises. 

Improved productivity will lead to projects finishing on schedule and within budget. These factors translate into more profit for your project.    

4. Ideal for Emergency Situations

A chemical spill or other mishap could occur on your worksite. Having a portable shower on-site will help you initiate a quick response to help any worker who is affected during an accident.

Providing access to portable showers will also allow your workers to scrub off harmful chemicals they might encounter at a construction or industrial site. Workers can wash away bacteria on the skin, which will ward off infections and diseases in areas prone to cuts, scrapes, and open wounds.

5. Great Portability

Your construction site is likely to change as the project progresses. Portable toilets and eyewash stations take up minimal space and can be repositioned to adjust to your needs during each phase of the project.

Specific to portable toilets, we offer numerous options to serve the needs of each worker at the job site:

  • Standard Portable Toilets
  • Women’s Portable Toilets
  • Caged Life-Eye Cans
  • Life-Eye Cans without cages
  • Wheelchair Accessible and ADA compliant Portable Toilets
