The Importance of ADA Compliant Portable Sanitation.
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) guarantees equal opportunity in public accommodations for individuals with disabilities.
When portable sanitation is provided in venues covered by the ADA, providers must take care to ensure the equipment and services they provide are consistent with this important law. Even when portable sanitation is not required to have ADA facilities, it is a best practice to have facilities for all people.
The portable sanitation industry must be conscious of the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act with respect to:
The circumstances under which handicap accessible units must be provided
How many ADA accessible units are required
The path of travel to an ADA accessible unit
ADA portable toilets are equipped with grab bars. Grab bars are used as extra support for maneuvering inside the unit. The ADA porta-potty is also lined with an anti-slip surface.
Each ADA portable toilet is designed at ground level, so no ramp is required to access the unit.
