When it comes to urinals in male toilets, there should be at least one for a workforce of between 1 and 30 employees, two for a staff of 31 to 60 men and three for between 61 and 90. Above that, you would need a minimum of four. You should also include toilets at a ratio of one for between 1 and 15 employees, two for between 16 and 45 staff members, three for between 46 and 75 and four for between 76 and 100.
When it comes to the toilet facilities at work, the regulations state that everyone has the right to access clean toilets and washroom facilities, and it’s your responsibility as an employer to provide them. From a health and safety perspective, this is about caring for your employees’ wellbeing, so staff members aren’t made to queue to use the washrooms. While these ratios of staff to basins and toilets is a simple guide to follow, it’s always worth including more washrooms if you can, to guarantee people aren’t made to wait.
