Webpage on requirements to maintain clean and accessible restrooms

The US- American Occupational Safety and Health Administration 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.



I.e restrooms must provide hot and cold running water or lukewarm water, hand
soap or similar cleansing agent and warm air blowers or individual hand towels
(e.g., paper or cloth).



The webpage includes information on the minimum number of toilet facilities an
employer must provide, in restrooms separate for each sex. The webpage also
includes a link to OSHA's recent best practices publication, A Guide to
Restroom Access for Transgender Workers.
