The Occupational Safety and Health Administration regulates the availability of toilet facilities in the workplace to protect employees from suffering adverse affects from a toilet being unavailable when needed. The Administration has developed a standard for the number of same-sex employees required per number of toilets. This standard, which applies to the general workplace setting, seeks to insure adequate, timely access to toilet facilities for all workers.
