Factories Act РOther Statutory  Health & Welfare Measures РLatrines provision

Latrine Accommodation

Latrine accommodation shall be provided in every factory on the following scale:

  • Where women are employed, there shall be at least one latrine seat for every 20 women;
  • Where males are employed, there shall be at least one latrine scat for every 20 males:

Provided that, where the number of males employed exceeds100, it shall be sufficient if there is one latrine scat for every 20 males up to the first 100, and one for every 50 thereafter.

In calculating the number of seats required under this rule, any odd number of workers less than 20 or 50, as the case may be, shall be reckoned as 20 or 50 and the maximum number of persons working in the factory at any time and not the total number of persons employed in the factory, shall be taken into account
