Construction sites often have no access to regular toilet facilities, which poses the problems of worker comfort and hygiene conditions. This blog shares the benefits that come from hiring a portable hot wash toilet unit that solves the problems you face at your construction site.
What Is a Portable Hot Wash Toilet?
A hot wash toilet is a portable toilet unit that includes facilities for hand-washing with warm or hot water (and cold, of course!). This type of portable toilet for hire contains the standard chemical toilet setup and a washbowl that provides enough space for washing up to your elbows.
Benefits of Having a Hot Wash Toilet on-Site
We’ve recently written an article that outlines the many ways in which a portable toilet hire can increase on-site productivity. These benefits encompass all of our units, including our hot wash toilets. Suffice it to say alongside the additional benefits outlined below, using one of our units on-site leads to increased employee productivity.
Health and Safety Compliance
The first and most obvious benefit of these specific toilet units is they comply perfectly with UK Health & Safety Regulations. This is a great example of two-birds-one-stone because these toilets comply with the ‘toilet facilities’ section of the requirements and the section on washing facilities.
Construction workers shouldn’t have to sacrifice hygiene simply due to their environment. Having hot or warm running water encourages more frequent hand-washing, and provides better sanitisation and contaminant removal than using cold water. For any construction sites that work with contaminated environments, hot water access — along with space for washing up to the elbow — is crucial.
We take our Environment Agency accreditation seriously here at LetLoos, which is why all of our units are more eco-friendly than regular toilet facilities. Portable toilets typically save between one and six gallons of water every use, due to the safe disposal of waste without the requirement of using water to completely flush the waste away.
