OSHA provides more guidance on restrooms

New website links to best practices concerning facility access for transgender workers

Posted February 12, 2016

OSHA has a new webpage explaining employers' obligations to provide all workers with sanitary and immediately-available toilet facilities. OSHA's sanitation standards are intended to ensure that workers do not suffer adverse health effects that can result if toilets are not sanitary and/or are not available when needed.

The webpage includes information on the minimum number of toilet facilities an employer must provide, and how to ensure prompt access to toilet facilities. The webpage also includes a link to OSHA's recent best practices publication, A Guide to Restroom Access for Transgender Workers.
