Sanitation compliance is important in securing licenses and permits to operate in a worksite. But more importantly, addressing the basic needs of workers results in less disruption and increased productivity. Construction sites with poor sanitary provisions can mean delays and running behind schedule. So aside from sanitation compliance, the workers’ needs and comfort should also be considered. This is where portable sanitation facilities come in handy.
