Having sanitary bins in any female washroom is a necessity for feminine hygiene. Whether you run a restaurant, own a small business, manage an office or maintain an entire shopping centre, products for feminine hygiene is a must in all facilities.
Many people are unaware of the basics of feminine hygiene, even though it affects about half of the population and is an inevitable part of life. If this is you or someone you know who is running a business, here are the details you need to know about sanitary bins.
Sanitary bins are placed in bathrooms for individuals to safely dispose of their hygiene products in public, business and commercial establishments. This discrete method allows items to be disposed of conveniently and safely.
It is a law according to Safe Work Australia that all female patrons must be provided with hygienic means to dispose of sanitary items. The text does not explicitly refer to sanitary bins however, this implies that it is the employer’s duty of care to provide adequate washroom services including the necessary disposal bins required.
So no matter the size of business or establishment you’re running, it is your responsibility to make sure all female workers and guests can safely access sanitary bins in the washrooms.
