UPDATE: B.C. to mandate flush toilets at construction sites

October 18, 2023  By CBC News

Construction companies will soon be required by law to bring in flush toilets for job sites in British Columbia with 25 workers or more, the premier said Monday.

Last week, the union representing 40,000 construction workers in B.C. launched a campaign callingĀ on the province to make flush toilets mandatory on construction sites. It said the chemical toilets currently in place at many sites are “unsanitary” and “undignified.”

B.C. Building Trades had asked construction companies to provide toilets and hand-washing facilities connected to sewer systems or portable units with running water on sites with more than 25 workers.
