Abstract: On October 7, 1998, the Advisory Committee on Construction Safety and Health(ACCSH) recommended that OSHA consider proposed revisions to the construction sanitation standard (29 CFR 1926.51). OSHA believes that the ACCSH recommendation raises important issues regarding the type of sanitation facilities needed for construction workers. OSHA intends to propose revisions to the sanitation standard, including the need to require washing facilities, gender-separate and lockable toilet facilities, and (where other OSHA standards require change rooms) gender-separate and lockable change facilities.
