How Many Toilets Should a Workplace Have?



How many toilets and facilities required in a workplace is defined by the number of employees, their gender, and any disabilities that they may have. The current legislation (Workplace [Health, Safety and Welfare] Regulations 1992) outlines the following requirements:


Disabled employees should also have use of suitable toilets and washing facilities to meet their needs, with large cubicles including supports and low hand basins. All toilet facilities within a workplace must be kept adequately ventilated and well lit and be in a readily accessible location.
