The Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992 place a legal requirement on employers to provide appropriate facilities for their employees at the place of work.
Sanitary Waste Disposal:
Air Freshening and Fragrancing:
Water Management Systems:
Warm Air Hand & Face Dryers: You are required by law to provide hand drying facilities in your washroom and the regulation states that washing facilities must include towels or other suitable means of drying.
The Environmental Protection Act 1990 places a legal “Duty of Care” upon businesses and organisations to ensure that all waste in your premises is correctly managed right to the point of final disposal. Everyday millions of tampons, towels and panty liners are flushed down the toilet and over 60% of sewer blockages are attributed to the “disposable of Sanitary items”.
At Aqua Washroom Services we care about the environment and feel we can help in creating a cleaner place to live in not only for today but also for many years to come. All waste collected by us is either incinerated or recycled - unlike many others who only landfill their waste which takes many years to degrade.
All Information supplied by Aqua Washroom Services is designed to highlight areas relating to the supply of Hygiene Services within the workplace. We make every effort to ensure any changes made by the Government to both the Workplace (Health, Safety & Welfare Reg) 1992 & the Environmental Protection Act 1990 are updated, but for further guidance, clarification or more information we strongly advise you to visit the relevant Government websites (see below).
