How many toilets does a workplace have to have?

The answer is it DEPENDS.

It depends on what the needs of the workplace and the workgroups are, and is the same for the provision of other facilities and amenities.

The best way to get guidance on workplace facilities and amenities is to refer to the Managing the Work Environment and Facilities Code of Practice (COP) – WorkSafe Tasmania. This COP describes the requirements for managing the general work environment and includes:

  • Entry and exit
  • Housekeeping
  • Work areas
  • Floors and other surfaces
  • Workstations
  • Lighting
  • Air quality
  • Heat and cold
  • Access to facilities
  • Drinking water
  • Toilets
  • Hand washing
  • Dining facilities
  • Personal storage
  • Change rooms
  • Shower facilities
