It’s one of those topics isn’t it, but did you know that under the 1992 Health, Safety and Welfare Regulations every workplace must provide suitable means for the disposal of sanitary waste in each washroom?
“All toilet cubicles likely to be used by females, including disabled and unisex, should provide a sanitary disposal facility.”
The regulation doesn’t discriminate or make allowances, such as for smaller companies. Regardless of the number of employees, all organisations and businesses, are required by law to provide suitable sanitary waste disposal facilities. Add in the Water Industry Act (1991) and the Environmental Protection Act (1990), and your company washrooms can become a regulatory minefield.
Don’t panic! Help is at hand. Monthind can manage this tricky task for your business. We offer a wide range of modern sanitary units to meet your specific needs, including non-touch sanitary bins. And, because Monthind offers coordinated supply and management, we can also ensure that your company avoids the dangers involved with the daunting task of the correct disposal of sanitary waste. Our operatives use special carriers to safely and discreetly remove, change or relocate sanitary facilities within your organisation.
