How Many Porta Potties Do I Need?

How Many Porta Potties Do I Need?

Large events and other situations that have people working or in attendance require bathrooms. But, what are your options when you are working in a remote area or in an area where current facilities cannot meet the sanitary demand of the guests?

Renting a portable restroom is a great way to provide the necessary restroom facilities and sanitation for any large event, job site build, or emergency. Knowing which rental options are available to you, as well as the number of portable bathrooms you need keeps the process of renting a porta potty stress free.

How Many Porta Potties Do You Need for Your Event?

The required number of porta potties per person may vary depending on the size and type of event. With an idea of the festivities that will take place and the number of guests in attendance, finding the number of portable restrooms or porta johns needed is much easier.

Factors such as hand sanitizing and washing stations for restrooms should be kept in mind as you research different rental options, as sanitation is essential for any type of portable toilet use.

Portable Toilet Rentals for Job Sites

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) typically requires a specific number of restrooms that is proportional to the number of workers for the job. These regulations are in place in order to ensure the job site is safe, functional, and comfortable for workers.

Construction sites, for example, OSHA lists the restroom requirements as one porta potty for twenty or less workers on the job. As the number of workers needed for the project increases, as does the number of restrooms required for optimal safety.

However, it is important to note that OSHA only mandates the minimum number of toilets needed. In reality, having more facilities will not only save on time spent waiting for the bathroom, but also increase the comfort and cleanliness of each toilet.

Portable Restrooms for Large Events

Unlike the restroom requirements for job sites, many events tend to vary regarding the number of porta potties needed. With more options typically available for events, such as concerts, weddings, or social events, the number and type of portable bathrooms depends on the circumstances of the event.

Portable restroom trailers are often used for larger events and provide a range of aesthetic and practical benefits. With many factors to consider, such as long lines, portable restroom trailers may be optimal because more stalls and hand washing stations are readily available for guests.

If food and drinks are being served at an event, you will need more porta potties and toilets available for your guests. This number goes up even higher if you are serving alcohol at said event – as alcohol may increase the frequency of someone needing to use the restroom. In addition, you must take into account how long your event will be, as the number of porta john rentals you need will go up the longer your event is.

With the added features of air conditioning and flushing toilets, portable restroom trailers are optimal for creating a comfortable and more aesthetically pleasing environment. This is especially important for large events, such as weddings, that require specific image quality and a higher number of restrooms.
