Better productivity on site
Without any toilets on-site, construction workers often have to leave urgently in search of a public restroom, disrupting their work. This may be a long journey, and you might lose your staff for some time while they go to the toilet, especially with all of the distractions a trip away from the workplace can provide, such as browsing in a store or coffee shop. Not to mention, you might have to spend extra time at the site cleaning up or changing into clean clothes. Overall, in terms of productivity and time management, the use of portable toilets on-site improves efficiency.
Happier clients and better hygiene
Even if the construction site has toilet facilities nearby, this can still present difficulties. Because construction sites usually involve water and sewage line disruptions, the toilets could soon start looking like portable ones at a music festival that have not been cleaned in days. Clients may still be plagued by deep levels of discomfort and invasion from a large number of construction workers in filthy boots traipsing through their facilities, even if the toilets are operational.
Following the HSE regulations
It is every construction site manager's legal duty to provide adequate welfare facilities for their employees. This includes toilets, and chemical toilets meet these standards when water or sewage lines are not an option. Don't put yourself or your employees at risk of a fine from the HSE (Health and Safety Executive) or causing them to be dissatisfied and ready to go on strike by disregarding the rules.
Eco-friendly welfare units
As climate change progresses, it is more important than ever that we consider the ways our actions impact the environment. Good business practices can include using portable toilets, which are much more environmentally friendly than traditional ones. Not to mention, they don't require nearly as much water and ensure that waste is disposed of safely.
