How Many Toilets Do I Need for My Event?
Calculating How Many Portable Restrooms You Need
The key points to consider when planning for portable restroom rentals is the number of attendees and the length of the event. Depending on the number of people you plan to host, the nature of the event (alcohol/no alcohol, food service, etc.), and the length of the event, your number of portable restrooms will increase.
The restrictions for events vary, but job sites are much more regulated. OSHA has strict requirements for restroom provisions on job site locations. It is imperative to follow the up-to-date guidelines for sanitation provisions based on the nature of your job site.
Portable Restrooms for Parties, Weddings, Concerts, and More
There are several factors to consider when planning an event. Whether it is a party, a concert, or another outdoor event, you will need to consider a few things:
- The general rule of thumb for porta potties is that for every 100 people at an event there should be two portable restrooms.
- For events longer than 4 hours, an additional toilet per 100 people should be added.
- If alcohol is being served at an event, the number of restrooms should be increased by one as well, so the ratio is three restrooms per 100 people or four if the event is longer than 4 hours.
- For events where food is served, remember to include hand washing stations in your rental budget.
Jobsites and Sanitation Requirements for Portable Restrooms
For job sites, OSHA requires one toilet and one urinal per 40 workers on the job site. If there are 200 employees or more in a location, the OSHA requirement is one toilet and one urinal per 50 employees. For each restroom (with four stalls), one handwashing station should be provided.
When planning restroom rentals for a construction site, it is crucial to remember that the restroom facilities will be used for the 40-hour workweek rather than a one- or two-day event. Our team will provide on-site sanitation services at your request to maintain your restroom rental when you rent restroom trailers for full workweeks.
