The construction site is a place that has a lot of action and busy people at all times. The various contractors and laborers come and go. Different vendors along with supply services are making their way to and from the site often.
If the construction site is located in a remote site or it is in a residential area that really doesn’t have a lot of retail stores, this can be a real inconvenience, and also a serious expense for the contractor.
The average construction laborer frequents the toilet and restroom 3 times in an 8 hour shift. The laborer spends approximately 3-4 minutes in the restroom if it is on-site. If the lavatory facility is off-site the average laborer spends 15-28 minutes traveling to the facility and then 4-9 minutes using the facility. This adds up to 19-37 minutes a trip or up to over 1 ½ hours. If you pay a laborer worker $12.00 per hour, that can amount to each worker getting up to $18.00 per shift to use the restroom.
The benefits that result from providing these services far outweigh the cost of not having them present on the construction site.
