The Welfare facilities section of the NSW WorkCover Code of Practice enforces that “a unisex toilet should include one closet pan, one washbin and means of disposing of sanitary items.”
The code of practice also states that “for female workers, hygienic means to dispose of sanitary items” must be available.
