Restroom Supplies Buying Guide for Your Business
There are necessary facilities that every workspace must provide, and one of the most important is a restroom. The Occupational Safety and Health Association (OSHA) states that employers must provide all workers with sanitary and immediately available restrooms. Along with providing the proper facility, having the appropriate supplies should also be part of your purchasing process. Learn more about what bathroom supplies are available, things to consider when selecting products, and how Amazon Business can help.
Baby changing station: These types of fixtures should be readily available in any type of commercial restroom facility, especially places that frequently have young children on the premises. The folding, space saving design of traditional baby changing stations allows it to be used in tight spaces such as restroom stalls or family restrooms. You can also order the baby changing station in a bundle that includes liners to reduce the risk of spreading germs.
Hand dryers: Automatic hand dryers are a great alternative to traditional paper towel dispensers. They can cut the extra cost of paper towels out of your budget and reduce the spread of harmful bacteria with their quick air drying technology and motion sensor, no-touch activation. Furthermore, they can be hardwired or plugged in, and come in a variety of colors to match your décor.
Toilet tools and cleaners: Part of providing safe bathroom facilities include maintaining cleanliness so having the proper toilet maintenance tools is essential. You can find plungers that are lightweight, rustproof, and mold resistant to prevent the spread of bacteria. They also come in single or 2-pack options with pliable and durable suction cups to get the job done. Furthermore, there is a variety of toilet cleaning tools such as toilet brushes, toilet wands, and toilet bowl cleaner tablets. Some of these products are also available to purchase in bulk packages to help save you money and keep you well stocked.
Urinal screens: Along with keeping toilets clean, you will want to make sure that the urinals in your facility are maintained as well. You can shop a variety of urinal screens in different scents to help reduce odors up to 30 days. There are also options available that are made of flexible material that comply with ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) and volatile organic compound (VOC) standards, and come in multi-packs to keep you well stocked. Furthermore, there are non-slip urinal mat options designed to protect your floors from unwanted moisture, are scented to reduce odors, and are made with fungicide to prevent fungal growth.
Now that you know what restroom products are available, you must also consider the specific restroom needs of your business. The OSHA standard for restroom facilities “is intended to ensure that employers provide employees with sanitary and available toilet facilities, so that employees will not suffer the adverse health effects that can result if toilets are not available when employees need them.” So think about the following factors when deciding what restroom fixtures and supplies you should purchase for your business.
Size of your business: More employees mean that you should have an ample amount of restroom facilities available. According to Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), companies with 111 to 150 employees must provide a minimum six toilets and require an additional toilet for every 40 employees beyond this limit. In addition, any company with 15 or more employees must provide separate male and female restrooms.
Commercial grade products: If your restroom facilities endure high traffic, it would be prudent to invest in commercial grade products that are more durable and can handle heavy use. Automatic commercial hand dryers are a good option to consider for high traffic restrooms since they eliminate the need for paper towels.
Space and storage: You should also consider the amount of space available in your restrooms and storage areas when purchasing supplies. A higher amount of restrooms means that you will need to consider storage space for any products or tools that are not in use. Alternatively, if you are purchasing a baby changing station, make sure that there is ample room for its use in a bathroom stall or family restroom facility.
