Recognising the importance of public toilets; will standards of provision improve?

During the current pandemic, many Local Authorities have closed their public toilets, with unpleasant consequences. Now there is perhaps a glimmer of hope in England, as the Government has launched a technical review on increasing accessibility and provision of toilets for men and women.

Congratulations to the BSI as international interest in their previous guide to working during the pandemic has now led to the latest version forming the basis of an international standard. PD ISO/PAS 45005:2020 Occupational health and safety management — General guidelines for safe working during the COVID-19 pandemic supplies practical recommendations to organizations and workers on how to manage the risks.  (Please remember to type your own contact details in the form provided by the BSI).
