Australia has a time-honoured custom of having a ‘fair go’. It means to act with reason, and to give everyone an equitable opportunity to achieve something. Aussies have this sense of a fair go built into our systems, and there’s no question that this extends to our need to include accessibility in portable toilet hire.
Accessible portable toilets are a must in many different environments. From festivals to outdoor expos, you’ll find accessible portaloos everywhere. Here’s why accessible portable toilets are so important when putting on an event:
Access for people with disability
Having accessible portable toilets at your event is important because it allows everyone to go to the toilet safely and comfortably – which is a basic human right. People with disability often are unable to use non-accessible toilets which require a step to be climbed, and this isn’t possible for those using a wheelchair or crutches. Accessible portable toilets are flush with the ground, allowing easy access for wheelchair users.
Accessible portable toilets should also include baby-changing stations for parents. Babies need a safe, clean place to be changed and without accessible portable toilets, your event may lack this. All of SBS Fence and Toilet Hire’s accessible portable toilets feature fully certified baby-changing tables, making your event suitable for all ages.
Meeting the Australian Standards
Your accessible portable toilets may not seem like it, but they’re actually built to a specific standard, and need to tick all the right boxes. Before hiring your accessible portable toilets, it’s important to check whether they’re compliant with the relevant Australian Standard AS1428.1-2021.
While most toilet hire companies in Sydney are compliant and legitimate, you can never be too sure. Should a health inspector discover that your hired accessible toilet isn’t compliant with AS1428.1-2021, your organisation could be at risk of a fine.
