All Safety Products Inc To Provide Assistance In Planning Health & Safety Equipment Purchases For Next Years Summer Outdoor Events

Safety Equipment and Portable Toilets and portable Hand washing facilities are often budgeted in the fall for next summer's events. The following guidelines show the factors to consider establishing your estimated requirements from which you can then decide whether to lease or purchase and finally then conclude the correct quantities and costs.

Quantities of Hand washing Equipment & supplies

Many employers, government agencies and event planners often require consultation on how many portable toilets and the correct amount of hand washing stations and hand sanitation liquid to provide. All Safety Products recommends the numbers below based on multiple variables and we can customize the calculations for your particular event.

The are several determining factors including:

o Weather - Heat: Use historical temperature data.

o Number of people expected : use historical data if available

o Serving of Alcohol: Ratio of adults to Children

o Duration of the event and its purpose

o Male/Female mix of attendees

o One time event or an annual or bi annual event.

o Age of Attendees

The required amount of Hand wash sinks can also be calculated using our experience and formulas.


People / Hrs    1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

Up to 50         1   1   1   2   2   2   2   2   2   2

One general guideline is hand washing units for outdoor events and festivities would allow at least 8 ounces of fresh water per person per use. Always ensure that you have 10% additional disposable supplies of extra paper towels and soap to restock dispensers as it is so important not to run out.

Type of Hand washing Equipment

All Safety Products has a full range of single user and multi user hand wash sinks as well as portable sinks that are mobile and can be easily moved, like the Handstand mobile sink that provides as well as multiple stations versus single stations to accommodate crowds. The physical placement of hand washing units is critical and so mobility of the sink to make positional adjustments can be important. Consider signage that directs attendees to the location of the sinks as this can be helpful. The Applause Two Station Sink works great for children as young as two years old with an easy reach of 32 inch height that it offers.

If you require sinks for several years, select polyethylene hand wash sinks as they are durable and contain UV protection for years of use with little maintenance. It is often better to buy rather than rent equipment if using it for several years.

Further information and guidelines can be obtained from and the CDC for specific information of ANSI requirements for a minimum amount capacity for portable hand washing stations for public usage. The CDC also offers regulations for proper hand washing and that includes the availability of soap and disposable paper towels. With increased concerns of health and hygiene at public events,
